Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.
What: Shares of Tibco Software
So what: Hewlett-Packard
Now what: The stock spiked at the open, but since traders already knew a deal wasn't imminent, we've since seen shares pull back. I wouldn't read into this rumor too much, because it looks like HP has given up, and the market isn't expecting a deal anymore. The 4% bump that shares still retain makes this a nice point for anyone looking to sell, but I'm not seeing any buy signs today.
