  1. Looks like it was a one day pop and settling back down into the muck. Flipped some quick shares yesterday. Watching these again for a low entry point to make a couple bucks.

  2. Interesting. Have some HT preferred (also a junky lodging) that I brought in the $3 – $4 range.

    Took them out at $11 after reading this.

    Suspect, they may try a similar path.
