What: Shares of liquefied natural gas (LNG) company Golar LNG
So what: Naturally, investors are taking Golar's shopping spree as a clear sign that demand is bouncing back and that its orders are finally starting to firm up. In fact, the stock is flirting with a new 52-week high today, with more than 860,000 shares having already changed hands (versus its average volume of 284,000 shares).
Now what: I'd be a little cautious about jumping onto Golar right now. With today's double-digit pop, the shares are up about 80% over the past three months and trade at a forward P/E above 20. Golar is more than two times as volatile as Mr. Market, so while the recent ride up has been great, any market or company-specific hiccup could send it down just as swiftly.
