In summary: Lear has been discovered. It has now gone from a sleepy little cyclical, barely covered and rarely noticed, to the latest toy of the big boys. I'm sure we'll be seeing higher prices for Lear in the future but also a lot more volatility.

I think this media coverage is what is responsible for the nearly $10 price jump we've seen over the last month. Lear is a good stock, and a great company, what effect will this new level of attention have? Let's hope it's all good.
