Deutsche Bank DB Stock News

Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE: DB)

Deutsche Bank isn’t having the best of days in the market today. In fact, as soon as the opening bell rang, the stock started making a run for the bottom. Since then, we’ve seen a continuation of downward movement, bringing the stock deeper into the red. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from DB, why, and what we’ll be watching for with regard to the stock ahead.





What We’re Seeing From DB

As mentioned above, Deutsche Bank isn’t having the best of days in the market today. When the opening bell rang, the stock started to make a quick run for the bottom. Since then, we’ve seen a continuation of declines, causing the losses to grow larger and larger. Currently (12:42), DB is trading at $18.20 per share after a loss of $0.81 per share (4.26%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Falling

As usual, when our partners at Trade Ideas informed us that DB was making a run, the CNA Finance team started digging to see exactly what was happening. For some time now, investors have been struck with uncertainty revolving around sales of toxic mortgage debt. The uncertainty pertains to the idea that the settlement could be incredibly large.




Nonetheless, news came out over the weekend that the bank may be settling with the United States Department of Justice relatively soon. Sources close to the story told Reuters that the bank may pay less than the $14 billion in penalties that were originally requested. However, how much lower of a settlement is still unknown.

What We’ll Be Watching Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on DB. In particular, we’re interested to see how the settlement ends up. All in all, the number is likely to be large. However, negotiations will likely bring the number below the original request for $14 billion. We’ll keep an eye on the story and be sure to update you as the news breaks!

American Railcar Industries ARII Stock News

American Railcar Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARII)

American Railcar Industries was having a relatively normal day in the market today. When the closing bell rang, the stock was slightly in the red. From there, we saw relatively slow movement, bringing the stock to the green and keeping it there; however, gains were nothing to be excited about. That is, until minutes ago, when the stock started soaring. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from ARII, why, and what we’ll be watching for ahead.





What Were Seeing From ARII

As mentioned above, American Railcar Industries wasn’t having a very exceptional day in the market today. In fact, movement was a bit bland. The stock started the day in the red, slowly worked to the green, and then stayed slightly above the break even point. Nonetheless, that all changed minutes ago as the stock started screaming for the top. Currently (12:05), ARII is trading at $48.77 per share after a gain of $3.39 per share (7.47%) thus far today.

Why The stock Is Spiking Upward

As usual, our partners at Trade Ideas were the first to inform us of the movement on RAII. As soon as they did, the CNA Finance team started working to see exactly what was causing the movement. It didn’t take long to uncover the story, and it’s a big one. It seems as though the gains are being caused by a big announcement made by Icahn Enterprises.




Minutes ago, Icahn Enterprises L.P. made a massive announcement. The firm announced that a definitive agreement to sell American Railcar Leasing LLC has been made. The value of the agreement is $2.778 billion, a massive chunk of revenue brought in for RAII. So, investors are reacting to the asset sale.

What We’ll Be Watching Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on RAII. In particular, we’ll be watching this asset sale to make sure it goes smoothly. We’ll keep a close eye on the news and bring it to you as soon as it breaks!

Credit Acceptance Corp. CACC Stock News

Credit Acceptance Corp. (NASDAQ: CACC)

Credit Acceptance Corp. was off to a relatively normal day in the market today. On the opening bell, the stock found itself in the green. Throughout the trading session, the stock has seen some upward movement and some downward movement, but nothing that has been too exciting. That is, until minutes ago, when the stock started to spike downward. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from CACC, why, and what we’ll be watching for ahead.





What We’re Seeing From CACC

As mentioned above, Credit Acceptance Corp. was having a relatively normal day in today’s trading session. While the stock was in the green for most of the day, it had seen some ups and some downs. Nonetheless, nothing was anything worth writing home about. However, that all changed minutes ago when the stock started spiking downward in a big way. Currently (12:42), CACC is trading at $207.00 per share after a loss of $2.13 per share (1.02%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Falling

As soon as our partners at Trade Ideas let us know that CACC was dropping like a bag of rocks, the CNA Finance team decided it was time to do some digging. It didn’t take long to uncover the story surrounding the drop, and unfortunately, it’s not good. It seems as though investors are reacting to a hit piece a research firm wrote about the company.




Minutes ago, Prescience Point LLC, a company that focuses on forensic financial research in an attempt to uncover companies misleading or defrauding investors, released a new piece. Unfortunately, that piece was about Credit Acceptance Corp., making heavy claims and causing instant concerns among investors.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be watching CACC closely. In particular, we’ll be watching the news surrounding the piece written by Prescience Point LLC as well as the company’s reaction to it. We’ll keep a close eye on the news and bring you the updates as they break!

Diana Containerships DCIX Stock News

Diana Containerships Inc (NASDAQ: DCIX)

Diana Containerships isn’t having the best of days in the market today. When the opening bell rang, the stock quickly found itself in the red. From there, the stock has continued spiraling further down the path toward losses. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing, why, and what we’ll be watching for with regard to DCIX ahead.





What We’re Seeing From DCIX

As mentioned above, Diana Containerships isn’t having the best of days in the market today. Upon the ringing of the opening bell, the stock quickly found itself in the red. Since then, we’ve seen a continuation of losses, leading the stock further and further down into the abyss. Currently (10:59), DCIX is trading at $3.34 per share after a loss of $0.54 per share (13.92%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Falling

As always, as soon as our partners at Trade Ideas let us know that DCIX was taking a dive, the CNA Finance team started digging to see exactly what was causing the movement. The truth is that it didn’t take long to uncover the story, and it’s definitely not something that is directly related to the company. Here’s what’s happening…




Yesterday, Diana Containerships climbed in the market. After DryShips announced funding and plans to work with other shipping companies, the shipping sector as a whole climbed. However, this was never going to last long. The reality is that the Baltic Dry Index is falling at the moment, and shipping stocks generally follow this index. So, following artificial inflation, we’re seeing a correction today.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on DCIX. In particular, we’ll be watching the Baltic Dry Index for an idea of where the shipping sector as a whole is headed. We’ll watch the news closely and bring it to you as it breaks!

Dunkin Brands Group DNKN Stock News

Dunkin Brands Group Inc (NASDAQ: DNKN)

Dunkin Brands looked like it was off to a relatively normal day in the market today. When the opening bell rang, the stock quickly found itself in the green. Since then, we’ve seen relatively flat movement keeping the stock up, but definitely nothing to write home about. Nonetheless, minutes ago, the stock started to soar. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing, why, and what we’ll be watching for with regard to DNKN ahead.





What We’re Seeing From DNKN

As mentioned above, Dunkin Brands was off to a relatively normal day in the market today. As soon as the opening bell rang, the stock started working its way into the green. Since then, movement has been relatively flat, and while the stock remained in the green, there was nothing exciting happening. That is, until minutes ago, when the stock started making a mad dash for the top. Currently (10:40), DNKN is trading at $55.60 per share after a gain of $2.02 per share (3.77%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Climbing

As always, as soon as our partners at Trade Ideas notified us that DNKN was spiking high, the CNA Finance team started digging to see exactly what was causing the movement. While we were unable to uncover any fundamental news that we believe would be enough to cause the spike, we were able to find something interesting in social. It seems as though the stock is climbing as the result of a rumor.




At the moment, there’s a big rumor circling Dunkin Brands all over the social networks. That rumor is that the company is likely to be taken over. Furthermore, rumor has it that the buyer is JAB Holdings. While the acquisition would make sense, there has been no confirmation from either side that an acquisition is actually going to happen.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on DNKN. In particular, we’ll be watching to see if there is any validity to this takeover rumor. Nonetheless, most rumors prove to be false, so if you’re trading on this, trade with caution. We’ll keep a close eye on the news and bring it to you as it breaks!

SEANERGY MARITIME SHIP Stock News

SEANERGY MARITIME Common Stock (NASDAQ: SHIP)

SEANERGY MARITIME looks like it is going to have an incredible day in the market today. While the opening bell has yet to ring, the stock is already showing some impressive movement in pre-market trading. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing, why, and what we’ll be watching for with regard to SHIP ahead.





What We’re Seeing From SHIP

As mentioned above, SEANERGY MARITIME is looking like it’s going to have an overwhelmingly strong day in the market today. At the moment, the market isn’t open quite yet. However, the stock is already trading on impressive pre-market gains. Currently (9:21), SHIP is trading at $1.50 per share after a gain of $0.20 per share (15.38%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Headed Up

As always, when our partners at Trade Ideas informed us that SHIP was making a run for the top, the CNA Finance team started digging to see exactly what it was that was causing the movement. In this particular case, it took a bit to piece together the story. At the end of the day, there has been no fundamental news released about SEANERGY MARITIME that would suggest such large gains would be on the way. Nonetheless, we did find something.




Yesterday, DryShips made a run for the top after announcing $200 million in funding and planned partnerships with two other shipping companies. For some time now, when DryShips runs upward, the rest of the shipping sector tends to follow. With strong gains on DryShips yesterday, it makes sense that shipping sector investors are becoming excited. Ultimately, this is what’s pushing SHIP upward.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

While I hate to say this, I’m watching for steep declines in the shipping sector as a whole. While the DRYS news was positive, the Baltic Dry Index is falling. This generally signals bad news for the shipping sector in the market. Nonetheless, we’ll keep an eye on the news and bring you the story as it breaks!

Euroseas ESEA Stock News

Euroseas Ltd. (NASDAQ: ESEA)

Euroseas is having an incredibly strong day in the market today. Upon the opening bell, the stock found itself in the green. Throughout the morning, we’ve seen a continuation of gains, bringing the stock upward in a big way. In fact, the value of the stock has nearly doubled. Today, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing, why, and what we’ll be watching for with regard to ESEA ahead.





What We’re Seeing From ESEA

As mentioned above, Euroseas is having an incredibly strong day in the market today. As soon as the opening bell rang, the stock started to make a dramatic run toward the top. As the trading session has progressed, we’ve seen more of the same. As a result, the stock has nearly doubled in value today. Currently (11:52), ESEA is trading at $2.69 per share after a gain of $1.30 per share (93.53%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Up Today

As usual, as soon as our partners at Trade Ideas notified us that ESEA was making a run for the top, the CNA Finance team started digging to see exactly what was causing the movement. The truth is that this one took a bit longer than usual to piece together. At the end of the day, we’ve seen no fundamental news from the company, no rumors, and the only sector-wide news is that the Baltic Dry Index is falling. Nonetheless, we did find something.




Early this morning, DryShips made an announcement that it has secured $200 million in funding and plans on working with two shipping companies on future agreements. While this news isn’t directly related to Euroseas, over the past few months, we’ve noticed a trend in the shipping sector. That trend is that when DryShips is up, others tend to follow.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

While I hate to be the bearer of bad news, the CNA Finance team is looking for a sharp correction ahead. At the end of the day, there really is no valid reason for gains today. In fact, considering the Baltic Dry Index, there’s more of a reason for losses. So, if you’re playing this one, be cautious, and be ready to take your profits. Nonetheless, we’ll watch the news closely and bring it to you as it breaks!

Since then, we’ve seen more and more upward movement, bringing the stock into incredibly impressive gains. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from the stock, why, and what we’ll be watching for with regard to DRYS ahead.





What We’re Seeing From DRYS

As mentioned above, DryShips is having an incredibly strong day in the market today. When the opening bell rang, the stock quickly found its way to the green.

Why The Stock Is Headed Upward

As always, as soon as our partners at Trade Ideas informed us of the ongoing run on DRYS, the CNA Finance team started to do some digging to see what was causing such strong upward movement. In this particular case, it didn’t take long to uncover the story. An update from the company seems to be the cause of the gains.




Early this morning, DryShips issued a press release announcing financing and expectations. The company said that it has secured $200 million in financing. On top of that, DRYS is expecting to enter into new agreements with TMS Bulkers and TMS Offshore Services. So the gains are the result of excitement revolving around this update.

What We’ll Be Watching Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on DRYS. In particular, we’re interested to see how the funding helps and what happens with regard to the expected agreements. We’ll also be keeping a close eye on the Baltic Dry Index as this dictates movement in the shipping sector. Nonetheless, we’ll keep a close eye on the news and update you as it breaks!

Inter Game Tech IGT Stock News

Inter Game Tech (NYSE: IGT)

Inter Game Tech was off to an incredibly strong start in the market today. As soon as the opening bell rang, the stock started climbing upward, and it looked like it was going to continue on that path throughout the day. However, minutes ago, things changed as the stock started taking a drastic dive. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing in the market, why, and what we’ll be watching for with regard to IGT ahead.





What We’re Seeing From IGT

As mentioned above, Inter Game Tech was off to what seemed to be a strong start in the market today. The stock started climbing immediately when the opening bell sounded. Throughout the morning, we saw a continuation of gains. Nonetheless, minutes ago, we saw a big reversal of direction, quickly bringing the stock down into the red. At the moment (10:28), IGT is trading at $24.09 per share after a loss of $0.22 per share or 0.90% thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Falling

As usual, the CNA Finance team was notified by Trade Ideas at the beginning of the run. As soon as we received the notification, the team started digging to see why IGT was falling apart. It didn’t take long to dig up the story. The losses seem to be the result of an investigation into the Lottery business.




Minutes ago, it was announced that there was an investigation started in the lottery business in Illinois. The investigation is looking into claims that lottery systems are scamming consumers. Some believe that this investigation will actually uncover a nation-wide scam. As a result, Inter Game Tech is taking a dive.

What We’ll Be Watching Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on IGT. In particular, we’ll be watching the Illinois investigation closely to see if there is indeed a scam taking place. If so, this could just be the tip of the iceberg with regard to the declines. Nonetheless, we’ll watch the news closely and bring it to you as it breaks!

Hertz Global HTZ Stock News

Hertz Global Hldgs (NYSE: HTZ)

Hertz Global was off to an interesting start to the trading session today. After starting the day well in to the green, the stock took a bit of a dive, falling well into the red. Nonetheless, the stock started spiking minutes ago, bringing it back up into gains. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing in the market, why, and what to watch for with regard to HTZ ahead.





What We’re Seeing From HTZ

As mentioned above, Hertz Global was off to an interesting start to the trading session, to say the least. At the opening bell, things looked good. The stock was up thanks to strong after-hours and pre-market activity. However, shortly after the bell, the stock started diving into the red. Nonetheless, minutes ago, it started climbing. At the moment (10:09), HTZ is trading at $23.48 per share after a gain of $0.75 per share (3.30%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Climbing

As always, as soon as we were notified by our partners at Trade Ideas that HTZ was making a run for the top, the CNA Finance team started digging to see exactly what was causing the movement. It didn’t take long to dig up the story. While there’s not much with regard to fundamental news surrounding the company at the moment, there is a bit of social chatter happening.




At the moment, there’s a rather large rumor surfacing in social media. That rumor is that Hertz Global may be taken over relatively soon. In fact, the rumor is that Carl Icahn’s company, Icahn Enterprises, is currently in discussions with other parties in an attempt to bid for 100% of the equity in HTZ.

What We’ll Be Watching Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on HTZ. In particular this Icahn rumor is interesting, and we’re excited to see if there is any validity to it. Nonetheless, keep in mind that, at the moment, it’s just a rumor, which means it could be a very risky play. We’ll keep a close eye on the news and bring any updates straight to you!
