Why? Only big shareholders own the millions of shares being bought back. They will not relinquish their shares below 42$. Those who sell at these levels will feel extremely stupid in the next few weeks.
the bears r right on - in the short term. in the medium term - most people have not tendered their shares, especially the institutional investor. Management will then have to pickup shares in the open market. this will play havoc with the short seller 46$ - 48$ is the medium term price range huge buy - at todays prices
definetely a buy. even the big time crooks- goldman sachs say HD is a buy. what we see here is a huge short attack. time to pickup some good cheap stock. disclosure - i have picked up 20,000$ worth HD recently.
