average volume is over 495k. Not my definition of illiquidity. Moreover, a split MIGHT get a few small investors to buy, but should have no other effect.
I don't understand your logic. Only 11% of shares are held by insiders, and because of shorts institutions own 109% of shares. It is not like SAFM is a microcap. Stock has no problem, apparently, in going down in price so why would it have a problem going up if institutions wanted more of it? I imagine some potential buyers don't want to be associated with SAFM.
From ADM earnings release: "But, within our Ag Services segment, the milling business had record second-quarter results.". Not so for BG, even in North America.
What does this have to do with Portland General Electric?
It occurs to me that the acquisition, draining SLI balance sheet, may make merger deal less likely, as HNH is draining its own balance sheet through its own acquisitions. Then again, looking at ATNY, Steel Partners seems to like leverage and get away with it as regards getting loans.
For a stock with such earnings volatility this makes sense. A "soft" rule would be good specifying a % target, which would be followed unless there was a reason not to.
I just checked and Westcott scissors are on Amazon, for example. I suspect that the retail pipeline of inventory to sales is lower for Amazon than for say Walmart, which means this could be another source of temporarily falling retail demand as total retail pipeline falls.
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Scientists have developed a vaccine strain that has tested 100 percent effective in protecting chickens from bird flu and testing is underway to see if it also protects turkeys, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack told the House Agriculture Committee at a hearing on Wednesday
I don't endorse it by any means, but might explain price rise today:
The DividendRank formula at Dividend Channel ranks a coverage universe of thousands of dividend stocks, according to a proprietary formula designed to identify those stocks that combine two important characteristics — strong fundamentals and a valuation that looks inexpensive. Escalade, Inc. (ESCA) presently has an above average rank, in the top 50% of the coverage universe, which suggests it is among the top most "interesting" ideas that merit further research by investors.
But making Escalade, Inc. an even more interesting and timely stock to look at, is the fact that in trading on Wednesday, shares of ESCA entered into oversold territory, changing hands as low as $17.09 per share. We define oversold territory using the Relative Strength Index, or RSI, which is a technical analysis indicator used to measure momentum on a scale of zero to 100. A stock is considered to be oversold if the RSI reading falls below 30.
They seem to expect store closures in office market to continue into next year. That does have a doubly depressing effect, as they point out, because of reduction in total inventory held by stores, so demand on ACU is less than retail sales.
I have trouble believing this is reason for pre-market tumble, especially given new price target, but then I am not that familiar with Wall Street doubletalk, as I don't tend to pay attention to it.

I believe such sales should be limited to a 2 week period after 10-Q is released, although such a policy is a problem with low volume stock. Certainly, by May 5, insiders have a pretty good idea of results for the quarter ending in May and should not be allowed to trade. Investors should be wary of trading themselves at such times.
