I called it a bit of a stock tip and, if you followed it, you would have done quite well. On July 22, the stock (FCEA) of parent Forest City Enterprises, was at $6.94. Yesterday, even after two days of deep percentage drops, the stock closed at $11.76.
That doesn't mean long-time stockholders are in the clear, given that stock's 52-week high was $29.47 and the stock neared $70 in 2007. It all depends on the timing. (Click to enlarge three-month price chart.)
