Stock Fans, remember March 6, 2000? That was 3 Monday ago... This stock an unheard of company came out and said it was in a deal with powerhouse (NYSE:LU). The stock immediately went form $3.00 to the stars going as high as $15.00. On big volume. Then CNBC saw it and commented and they sent it to $26.00 plus on over 5 million shares volume.
Since that time (NASDAQ:ULTR) has dropped all the way back to almost its low ahead of the news. It went as low as $5.1250 just 2 trading days ago. However the fall from $16.50 reached on March 7, 2000, down to $5.1250 took place on much less volume. In fact it took more then 5 million shares to move it to $16.50 and since then less then 2.6 million shares have traded to send it back down, until 2 days ago. What happened the day before yesterday is shares of ULTR began to come back. In fact they added on more volume still lower then 30 day average but indeed more as the stock seemed to have interest again as plenty of investors had held it off $16.50 area reached on March 7, 2000. Looking at yesterday the stock traded the most it had in the last 10 trading days as it ended the day at it high just under $8.00 a share. We like this one today as a low risk play. It has positive cash flowing into it and looks to have found its lows. It could really move if investors remember the LU news witch is still quite fresh. If LU and ULTR come out and add more information to the press release on March 6, 2000, this stock could take off and really go as supply is a big problem when demand comes in. It looks like a good low risk play today and worth a whirl to hold onto and see what transpires.
