Strange NICK Trades on Friday


Just a quick note on some bizarre trading activity for Nicholas Financial ($NICK) on Friday morning. Apparently, a few trades on very light volume went off over $16 per share. The high was $16.96.

There was no news on the stock, and I hope nobody got too excited. These were probably some bad trades that slipped through. Once trading volume returned, the stock went back to its previous territory in the low $15 range. The stock did 101,000 in volume on Friday.

My apologies for the excessive volatility — and this is yet another reason why I stay far away from day-trading. But make no mistake, NICK is a very good stock.
