If I See A Trade Like This Again, I’m Taking It

Did You Take This Trade?

I wish I did.  Here’s the background:
Sears
and KMart finalized their merger on Thursday, and as of Monday
the new symbol for the combined company–Sears Holdings–will be SHLD.
Sears will be de-listed from the NYSE and SHLD will be traded on the Nasdaq. To
top it all off, SHLD was added to the S&P 500 Thursday after the close, which of
course means index funds must own it. Here’s what KMRT looked like just
before the close on Thursday:

The next time I see something like this, I’ll
watch it like a hawk and probably will take it.
