Today was pretty intense. $QCOR found itself the victim of a open trading downgrade at approximately 1015, sending the stock down about 20% on volume, before tanking about 60%. Somehow a circuit breaker was never triggered during the initial run, go figure. This followed some serious put spreads entered the day before, how serendipitous of those investors.
$GRPN got a shout out on CNBC at about 10am extolling the virtues of its plan to set up some type of point of sale system. Apparently $GRPN wants to encompass all things POS. Either way, this sent the highly shorted stock up.
$THS had a buyer of $60 Nov 12 calls to the tune of 3k at .50, or a $150k in premium. That sent the shares up post purchase.
$JCP went on a bit of a wild ride today toward the closing bell after the CEO made some uplifting comments, then made some "demotivational" comments which "squashed that bug".
