“IF YOU PREFER”; Do you have the temp symbol??? I want to jump on this one.
Chuck – it will pop up here the moment a temp symbol is assigned:
I should be tradable tomorrow. Sometimes first thing; sometimes not until lkater. It has to “break syndicate” before you can trade it (unless your broker is on the inside) and then it often takes brokers some time to get the symbol up and tradable on their platform.
Perhaps some of the insiders here have better answers.
And just like that ……..
WOW, over 5.9 Million shares have already traded this morning. Trading between $24.99 and $25.00. Would love to hear from the financial gurus here on this site as to their unbiased opinion on this company. I did read their most recent quarterly and browsed thru their most recent annual but I freely admit Iam NO CPA . I always thought the point of this site was to share ideas as to WHY we like or dislike something. Some of us do very serious deep dive research and some don’t and some just simply don’t have the time as they have jobs. I like this company and own 6,409 shares of the TDS+U but would love some input from others if possible. They have 6 million customers and are in the Fortune 1000 according to their own website.
Why TDS-U is being harmed so hard today?
Because it’s a 4.65 ytc and par TDS new issue is talking 6.
U came out showing 6 5/8 I couldn’t believe they printed there. Me hopes this prints at the 6% prelims PT
Do you have the temp symbol yet? Iam interested in this one.
