the N is NR stands for news....a fact Ithaca seemed to miss.  I really dont know more about the company now than I did last night.  No serious mention of an acquisition, just statements that 220M is available post Noble.  Agree with dbeade, oil stocks not feeling any love despite decent pricing.  Not worried abot today, stock will gain back over the next few trading days, but no momentum for 2013.   Stella is promising, but a 2014 story.  With no debt and great tax pools lets hope someone pools the trigger and makes an offer.  I know my 300,000+ shares are for tender and the pirce I am willing to accept keeps getting lower....
