Don't confuse me with the Kool Aid drinkers who fall in love with a stock and refuse to see anything but the positive.
I neither love nor hate this stock, I am agnostic. I am simply answering the original question as to why this stock is down today.
There are plenty of reasons why this would be down (or even up) in the LONG run. But I'm talking about a single day.
Because $ABX is a play on the price of gold, and because the DOW is up 254 points.
When the dow is down tomorrow, everyone will forget today, and ABX will be back up to (probably) past $13.50
