    Sam where is GD going this week?

    Q: Is it going up or down?
    A: YES!

    What's with the big price swings with this stock?

    It's not that thinly traded. Any thoughts?

    • JMHO but I think there's a lot of anticipation relative to the new gov fiscal year kicking off next week on Mon 1 Oct and, in particular, all the hoopla about the thousands of MRAP armored vehicles needed to replace HMMWVs in the military. Contracts for those vehicles are expected to be awarded early in the new fiscal year, meaning in the Oct - Dec time frame. GD's a player in this area, both directly via GD Land Systems and also via a joint venture with Force Protection, an established smaller company in the armored vehicle field. Think that's a good part of the the action in the last few days...and hopefully for some time yet.
