There was an imbalance on MSN near the close of 35,100 shares on the sell side. Obviously there were some orders in the book to buy at prices below the last sale of 1.23, and the print of 35,108 shares went up at 1.12, incredible. He must have put his mask on before that print. If I was a floor governor of the exchange, I would be very interested to check out how many shares this weak specialist actually bought for his own account at the approximate 10% discount. I realize this isn't an extremely active stock but that print looked incredibly poor. If I were the company, I would think of saving listing fees and have the stock trade OTC.
When so much of Aflac's business in Japan and the economy improving there, I have often wondered why another Japanese company doesn't try to acquire it? Not like it is selling at a huge multiple. Serious dialogue welcome. A friend was kidding with me about Geico and Aflac and how great it would be to have Geico (Warrent Buffett) acquire Aflac and put the Geco and the Duck in the same ads. Would be fantastic.
A ten for one split on a co that probably came public a few yrs ago at 12 1/2cts and has no revenues and a stockholder deficit of about $276,000 as of Jan 31,2015. Quite a coincidence that the symbol has such a close likeness to one of the best investments of the last 50 yrs which may be the only asset it has. Certainly looks like a potential pump and dump with very few shares trading up to the split news. Come on really, a venetian blind repair business? Even though it supposedly has been public for awhile, I can't find any record of its trading before this month with a total of 3001 shares trading so I would suspect that the supply is in very close hands hoping to see some action on the 10/1 split news. I know if I were an SEC investigator, I would be watching this one closely.
