Dollar Thrift Auto - special situation

|Includes:Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group Inc. (DTG)

This morning my Barchart new high screener detected price movement on Dollar Thrift Automotive Group (NYSE:DTG) so I added it as a short term holding in the Barchart Van Meerten New High portfolio.

Recently there have been several suitors looking to acquire this company.  In the past I've noticed price movement just like this and have taken advantage.  My advice is to buy and as soon as the bid is announced sell at about 98% of the bid.  Don't hang around for a better bid or disapproval of the stock holders
