  • #$%$? Something is really really odd. 26M traded on the close. This is the third time recently that such volume has occurred on the close. What could possibly explain this? Something is very odd. Anyone?

  • I do not know what it means but again a buyer stepped in right on the close with a big buy. Last Friday was huge, today less so, but both times buying on the close.

    The tender of 11.33 was for a limited # of shares and has passed. That tender isn't interesting but last Fridays close was.

  • 10M shares traded in the final minutes of trading. Friday volume shows 16m shares vs. 4m average. Obviously, someone big (with around $100m) thinks HCT is going higher.

    To 'Checking_here'. May I can offer you and others some thoughts. I'm guessing that you're short VRX. Are you aware that the most shorted stocks are, and have been, the best market performers recently? The most shorted stocks are up five-fold the S&P. Lets consider why. Our Government has printed over ten trillion dollars of new money to stimulate and revive the economy. This was a risky action, and taxpayers are on the hook for this money, but printing vast money to stimulate was Ben Bernanke's idea and direction. Now it is true, that our Government did not want this vast new money simply end up in the stock market, but, unfortunately this is where the bulk has gone having been (mis)allocated there by our nations financial sector. That being the case, the Government cannot now simply let the market decline because this would allow the vast new money to simply "evaporate" and leave only the debt on all of our shoulders. Therefore, the Government covertly needs the markets to stay up, at least until, all that vast new money (over ten trillion) begins to move outside of the stock market. Overall, the Government has gotten itself into a very tricky spot. The people that are trying and failing to short this market need to recognize who and what they are up against. Even though the Government is "tapering", it remains still pushing tens of billions each month into the financial sector. That's "hundreds of thousands of millions" each month betting against those short.
