After hours, price is $7.20. So even with triple volume in the last 30 minutes or so the stock didn't move from Fridays average price.
What all this means? I'm not sure. I'll leave it up to the pro's on this board to explain in detail.
I do think it was index balancing.
Bottom line. Was it good or bad for RAD!
They bought, they sold and then bought again in those last few minutes.
Those few minutes of manipulation made someone a lot of money by buying selling and buying again of millions of shares.
This is why small retail investors are at a big disadvantage. With all stocks.
Does anyone know if RAD was part of the russell rebalance? If so this explains it.
It makes sense re: MCK. But not for the stockholders. Long term RAD will be in the 20'S. A quick buy out, maybe 10-13 is as much as you can expect at this specific time frame.
Something to do about over use in the past few years.
First of all I need to make a few comments.
If AAPL was to produce a wearable that monitors blood pressure and heart beats and sends a signal to the wearer then this is big time news.
Why? Because of sudden deaths, not just by old people, but younger ones as well who could have been warned of high blood pressure and abnormal heart beats.
Many of us are just thinking of another wearable like the others that are great for athletic types and those who want to be connected for god knows how many reasons.
It's been reported that there is less than 40% of people who would be interested in the product if and when AAPL may come out with a wearable watch. Like others before them, it could be a flop.
.My bottom line is if AAPL has a product that could warn it's wearers of unusual problems with their health then everyone will be interested.
Including me and a few 100 million others.
I just finished a tour of 13 months in Vietnam. I went to my high school 2 years after graduation on leave between assignments. I was denied entrance because I was wearing my uniform that I was proud of and proud to serve my country.
All I wanted to do was see a couple of teachers who had taught me over my high school years and believed in me during trying times in school.
I never went back.
Just a little tid bit. Any long term holder as I'am, knows how GLW almost went BK with cable many years ago.
I'm sure this time around, no matter who may buy GLW fiber that GLW will be a little more reluctant to over produce without iron clad contracts that must be paid if this fiber build out falls apart in the future.
I'm happy to hear about the GOOG news article, but I want to hear about the AT&T purchase of fiber and from whom.
I would assume the AT&T deal is worth a lot more than GOOG.
Thanks for your reply. I'm sure serious investors in GLW already know what you have written. If not it's a good reminder.
But at this time there has been no proof that GLW fiber is being used.
I would hope at some point there is some verification.
I remember an article saying GOOG was using their own fiber. But I could have been dreaming.
Long term holder.
Who the heck is making all this fiber???
I hope GLW is at least doing some of it and not an overseas company.
If Rad disappoints tomorrow, consider it a buying opportunity.
BUT, with all the negativity surrounding Rad, any number above the the worse case could see a good upside in the PPS.
Besides, there is a great deal of shorts who once were longs, may want to cover and jump back in.
I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best.
Long term holder of RAD.
I hope this spreads across the USA. A small majority of teachers are dumb as dirt and should be fired.
They have turned out students that are dumber than they are, through complete incompetence and should be let go.
The supreme court of California has said that many teachers were going against students rights to receive a decent education. Mostly the poor are the ones who have been disenfranchised.
What's amazing is this is coming from the most liberal state in the country.
Oh yes the teachers union is up in arms over this.
All the union ever want's is more and more. The dumbest teachers are ones on the picket lines.
HA HA.Nice response. Yes more bites and less choking trying to eat it whole. Now it digests easily vs last week.
I don't put a buy on any stock I own. Not even Apple. I trade stocks that I feel are pretty good holds for the short and long term. I just like what is going on with Apple.
P.S. I'm a long term buyer and very happy.
You have millions of people who have Apple products. They now have the ability to own a share in the company they admire that they couldn't afford before.
Seven for one share makes no difference at all. But now the pie has been cut so we have seven people having a slice where before you had one pig eating it all.
Bottom line, Apple continues to rise due to demand by those able to buy at a lower price.
As you have predicted that a fall in RAD tomorrow will happen, I will as usual will pick up more shares if you are right.
A clock is always right twice a day. Maybe tomorrow will be your day.
But for those that are looking long term, that may be a great day to add more shares.
If the numbers from RAD are in the ballpark of what may be expected, I expect RAD will continue to please any and all investors.
From my perspective, one way or another is a win win situation for me.
