                    No apparent news out on $AGO today, but would note it trades below book value, showing improved ROE and low $3.7b market cap is attractive

                                        Sell-off in $NTY is complete joke. Perfect example of mixing amateur hour sell-side research with quant-driven trading in a small cap stock.
