  • Dollar Thrift Auto - special situation 0 comments
    Mar 22, 2011 11:46 AM | about stocks: 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
