Yes - this is absolutely terrible. Will still close lower than it opened even though up for the day. Can't make any money here. Gonna buy some Bitcoins instead.
Seriously, HON is just following the general market trend - at least these past two days. Even so, HON is still up a percent more than the DOW or S&P over the past five days.
A rash of analyst reports recently released on HON were generally favorable. The 12 year estimates of 13 reports ranged from 97 to 107 with the average being 101. The way the stock is responding, it may get there sooner then expected and estimates could increase as the year goes on. Looks like a safe bet for buy & hold this year - as long as the overall markets cooperate.
ABG now looks overvalued. Big move up since the end of October has to have more underlying reasons like someone wanting to take them private. Europe recovery also helping but still think there is more to the story.
Meanwhile, enjoy the run!
