Is it Undetected Insider Trading ............again?
(click images to enlarge)
I am suspicious of the trading yesterday because this happen once before and after an unusual spike in volume with no news on a quiet July day prior to a 4th of July trading holiday, but days later the company filed that the company's original auditor for nearly 30 years had resigned. I raised the red flag back then but because my following is quite small nobody paid any attention.
Titan Machinery (NASDAQ : TITN) is a very peculiar stock. The company has a market capitalization of nearly $300 million but the company's underlying fundamentals disclose a business that is on the brink of bankruptcy. Shares of the stock are being held and practically tied up by a group of major mutual funds that for some reason have added to their positions as the company's future becomes more and more in doubt.
Titan has a history of questionable related party transactions and a family member who has led underwriting from a boutique investment firm.
