What: Shares of outsourcing specialist Sykes Enterprises
So what: There's no firm news to explain the action. And while volume was up 19% over the three-month average, that's not enough to suggest that Big Money investors are selling the stock wholesale.
Now what: The message? Sykes' weakness could be short-lived. Here's hoping management is making good on previously announced plans to repurchase up to 5 million shares, especially now that the stock is trading for less than the long-term earnings growth rate analysts expect.
