I will agree they need some cash in the short term; probably better to do so with debt then with the crushed price of the equity;
the fact that at 10:24 ET, on the 1 minute chart, CYH closed above the 20 minute average for the first time during the day-only session. Then at 10:27 ET, CYH closed above the 50 minute average for the first time during the day session. When those two signals occur, the low is in, most of the time.
I'm long at $13.72
Good luck to longs, and my heart goes out to those who had to endure the earnings miss today. I think if you hang in there you will recoup today's losses eventually.
