Glad I bought when they annouced the company was spinning off one of their departments early this year. An analyst had a price targe of 75 by close to year end. So far, he's bang on!!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
This will come in the middle of October. Right now, brace yourself for a slight fall.
the only reason to split is so Miles can look like a swell guy; he's a slick and slimy as they come..........
We will get close to 70 today. I think seventy will be broken by the weekend.
a long time holder of abt...some advice please should a person sell some before split or stick in there?
Definitely stick with it... History has shown that when companies split or spin-off divisions, they do VERY well..
Read the book "You can be a stock market genius" by Joel Greenblatt before you make up your mind.
The last split was in the low 70's just before the Clintons came into office and Hillary started the healthcare initiative. I doubt you will see a split now. It will split when spin-off happens.
