Lexmark -- A Short Opportunity? (LXK)

Dec. 7.05 | About: Lexmark International, (LXK)

Printer maker Lexmark (ticker: LXK) presents an interesting short opportunity with a follow up reversal play.

Shares of LXK dropped almost a third in the beginning of October, after the company lowered its 3rd quarter outlook in half. LXK is trading close to a 5 year low and about half of its one year high. If rumors of an leveraged buy-out don’t pan out, I expect to see further drops in the stock price to around low $30’s or high $20’s.
