Lol. It is up today probably because you bought... check the volume. There is very little interest in this company. Facts the company is cutting back capacity (i.e. negative growth). It also had a guge profit write off ($65M!) in Q1 (more are probably coming), the company is extremly vague on customer growth (check out their latest releases on alleged business in South America.. ), they lowered their dividend in Q1 (and will probably do som again soon), they are trading at a 40% P/E premium to the US Defense Cos. Need I say more? Oh yes, and it just reached its 52 week low this past week... 'Bargain' hunters always come out when prices are falling. This thing is a falling knife.
stinky_perro: Re: your sentiment of "STRONG SELL" that you posted on 9/1:
I bought the stock on 8/30 at $30.89, as I mentioned in message, above.
Today was a really bad day for the market, yet ESLT closed at $37.41.
(P.S: In addition to price appreciation, it also pays a dividend of 3.2%...)
