The squeeze is on at Pitney Bowes after earnings and divestiture

Pitney Bowes (PBI +11.5%) soars a day after it showed more profit than anticipated in Q2.

The decision to sell its management services business to Apollo Global Management for $400M is expected to help the company operate more leanly.

Short interest is very high on PBI which could be affecting trading.

    Wow, a 13% day. When I saw the GAAP earnings, the miss on revenue and the lowered guidance I thought the stock would take a hit. but it appears the expectations are so low for PBI that anything short of imminent bankruptcy is enough to make the stock soar.


    Not that I'm complaining. I have a substantial long interest and I think the company is fundamentally undervalued because no one ever made all its parts work together. I believe Marc is the man to stitch this company back together into an organization that makes sense.
