Stock Pick: XIDE

Today’s stock pick: XIDE – Exide Technologies, the battery maker.

The stock dropped over 20% today on a not-so-good report on lesser than expected sales. However, they’re expecting a good third quarter, and every time XIDE releases financial info, the stock has tumbled…but it has always recovered by about a buck a share over the next month or two. If you got in at $3.06 today, you’d have already made 3% by 11am when stocks were back up to $3.15. Hold out for $3.50 – $4 and there should be enough time for the stock price to recover before Exide released their 4Q estimates and the stock drops again.
