Looks like it was a play to me...esp with today's action on the upside in a big way.....they set up the drop and then bought in as much as they could knowing that the buying would drive the price up..........or at least it looks that way....in any event totally agree with your estimation that the quarterlies should look good.....I am esp. enthused about the way ANS dealt with its long term debt - that was the albatros on its back and now it has been removed ANS should soar! All imho.
