Doesn't seem to matter. The momo players go short at the end of every quarter, regardless of the company's outlook. Happens every qtr. It triggers technical indicators and thereby doubt that the co is executing. For the last 2 years, the smart way to invest in this stock is to listen to the company, ignore the speculations, and be patient.
The weakness makes sense to me. HFC is no longer a divvy play. as stated on the cc, the focus now is share price appreciation. Many funds were into this for the divvies, expecting the special to come back. They're winding down their position. I'd give it 2-3 days.
