Has anyone heard anything lately on the potential merger deal or any new suitors?
No, I just wanted to hear if the virus was still aboard. The CDC has not shown any reports since the sailing that ended May 1, even though alot more people were ill on the May 1-16 sailing. Further, I am hearing reports that it is still on the ship, even with the sailing that ended today. It all seems strange that no reports are fort coming.
Heard (but cannot confirm) that the virus has been reported on the current cruise (May 16-23). Anyone else know for sure?
Has anyone seen any official report on this yet? Heard that there were a high number of cases. I know that the previous cruise on the Maasdam reported the virus as well, but it was less severe I am told.
For the record, I went ahead and shorted the stock today based on this.
Private sale - as others have already noted. Usually a good time to buy, as stock has to be marked down to move that many shares. Quarterly numbers looked decent to me. Expect a move back to at least $10 in a few days.
I doubt that this is the reason for the downgrade. More likely is that the stock has almost doubled since the IPO and more than doubled from the low. Also, $30 is a "mental" barrier to some and likely will pose some resistance, IMO.
WMB broke the secondary offering price of $57.00 and immediately dropped to 56.49, likely due to the flippers who got in yesterday at the secondary price and put in a stop at 57 to protect themselves. Then it bounced right back up. Classic.
Why would the underwriters be dumping now - at a loss? I do not think they would have taken the extra allocation unless they thought the company was in good shape. At any rate, today, tomorrow and Wednesday's trading is meaningless - just wait until earnings are released on Thursday, then we will have a better read on the stock price direction.
Hard to understand why this is down after all the positive upgrades/initiations. Sure thought it would be up today.
Stock should get a nice bump up this morning!
I think they are due out on Thursday, May 15. Anyone have thoughts on how good or bad?
Due to the low volume on this stock, earnings are likely to move it significantly.
Interesting comparison of the two companies. One thing I noticed is that the daily volume is much lower than that of PCTY. Any thoughts on why?
Doubt it will see $20 this week, as the volume is low today and it was priced below the original range (from Friday) on Tuesday. Will need some positive news to get it moving IMO.
"The Fresh Market still has plans to expand aggressively in California and Texas, despite a couple of failed forays into those states, the CEO of the upscale, small-format chain told investors.
“We decided we should just leave Sacramento, operate our stores that are successful in Palo Alto and Santa Barbara, and continue looking in Orange County, L.A. County, San Diego County, the Bay Area — those kinds of places,” Craig Carlock said at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Consumer & Retail Conference in New York. “And we’re just going to leave Sacramento behind us.”"
Looks like Motley Fool is at it again. I just read an article on Whole Foods where they re negative on TFM! Wish they would make up their mind,
