So Goes MPW

|Includes:Medical Properties Trust, Inc. (MPW)

Well, MPW was up for the day today, as was the rest of the stock market. The DJ was up 1.01%, the S&P was up 1.11%. MPW was up 1.68%, which makes sense with its beta, aka correlation with the markets of 1.58.

Medical properties trust, is thus up .15 cents for the day, having a current price of around 9.1$ PS.

The current trend apart from the normal market tracking concerning MPW, entails a haymaker order right at the close of the day for the past several days.

Last Thursday and Friday for example, a tremendous amount of volume occurred in the last minutes of trading. This led to a jump in price at open the next day. Today, we didn't see this pattern, but either way, it was interesting while it lasted.
