TAL timing of sale/merger came at the low end of the 52-week lows.
Or, company which created the merger bought cheap.
Should have asked for a higher price unless the turnaround not around the corner.
Those that bought TAL 30-40 screwed - no profits or have to wait 3-5 years to see if merger brings positive results.
I traded TAL in 30s when couple quarters eps was bad;
Day and/or swing traders made out on this one.
The ambulance chasers will soon come out (attorneys) filing suit price is too low.
Still trading near its 52-week lows;
You'll get a bounce, but how much higher before the reversal;
I give RAX up to 35 max before going back under 30;
Need higher revenue gains instead for price to return over 50;
Maybe in 2016 with some good unexpected positive news.
For now competitors eating RAX up thus the low stock price.
No one will touch VRX with a 100 foot pole.
VRX will implode from huge debt and no further acquisitions from its high stock price.
Interest rates rise and more to pay back will strangle VRX...very slow death.
Comparison is made with 1960s ITT buying companies rise, fall and demise.
Not going to happen overnight...like weeds growing or ice melting over time.
The game of musical chairs will end when the music stops.
I traded WY several years ago when it was in the 60-70 range for a profit.
Now I see it shares trade 25-35 range...and graph doesn't indicate a stock split.
Barron's has a recent article it can go up 35% potential.
Anyone follow why WY went from 60s to 30s and now this purchase.
House of cards held up by Elmer's glue instead of super or gorilla glue (lol).
Some days VRX will go up 3 to 5; other days go down 10 to 15 or 15% to 20%.
More shares traded today (11/6/15) than yesterday (11/5/15) - 2nd day after earnings announced.
Usually, 2nd day trade volume lower than 1st day volume and more importantly, trades in black higher.
Maybe that's a good sign XPO can rise more than it falls.
Cheap money with all the debt borrowing for acquisitions in the past will have to prove it is a smart move.
Still many hurdles along the way to see higher stock price in 2016 (over 40+ to 50).
Did you make a profit when he held and then sold ABBV?
Or, is it sour grapes you took a loss.
Could be various other reasons why ABBV stock price went higher - such as short covering, or better news down the line - whatever that might be.
Whatever, takes many to have owned and sold ABBV at different times.
I held this when it tanked in the high 40s, but rode it back up, bought some on the way down, too.
Owned GILD, too, and hasn't gone sky high after good earnings, but still holding for better or worse.
Didn't George start his own company?
Maybe if MW stock goes lower, he'll buy that company (lol).
Merger last year a bust.
Stock that falls this much says more to come or some kind of creative accounting took place.
Utilities also taking a hit with the good jobs report.
More than likely 0.25% interest hike in December.
O a good buy on pullbacks...never chase.
I'll buy on the way down to 45 in my ira for the dividends.
He might get a heart attack to make him step down....too much brain work and not enough exercise.
The wise know if they weasel their way out or when to fold?
In today's reversal, XPO didn't follow the crowd (yet) and rose for the 2nd day instead of giving back some gains.
Let's see how high this puppy can rise...due to short covering?
Wall St. had a herd mentality...or XPO a momentum stock which can go to extreme higher/lower.
Competitors also having a hard time...does XPO stand out or is it BJ leadership skills going to be the big factor to move XPO.
Timing is everything, as they say.
You could have written this 1-2 weeks ago and bought at higher prices.
Can't predict the bottom...could go lower and lower.
The wise will not jump all in until the dust settles.
How many shares did you buy on the way down? And sell on the uptick of $1-$2
Many factors come into play should XPO go over 45 by next earnings.
XPO was/may still be in the doghouse with institutional investors as many want to see earnings instead of losses.
Market pullback was partly responsible for the nosedive; XPO hasn't recovered yet over 35.
Another market pullback/correction won't help.
Others in the same industry also seen their stock head south.
Should be enough of buying companies for awhile, too.
Now to watch if XPO can hold above 30 for several weeks or give it all back.
Short-covering today partly for the rise.
No accounting manipulation like VRX come to light - otherwise end of growth story.
No news and VRX continue its sell off in low 80s.
Look for Pearson to step down soon for damage control.
VRX will see a small $2-$3 bounce higher next couple of days...next stop 70s.
Even Citron Left surprised it went this low (lol) and going lower.
Short covering will give VRX a pop but only 5-7 $$$.
When VRX trades lower, price moves down 7-9 $$$/
In other words one step forward, 2 steps back.
