This is the last hurrah for a growth stock...right?

I thought the same thing when the buy-out was announced for Transmontaigne Oil - especially when the current price was actually higher than the announced buy-out price. So I sold quickly at 8.90 and locked in my 18.5% (in 40 days!) profit.

Over the next 3 months, I watched from the sidelines as counter-offer followed counter-offer. The final offer was 11.35, and I gave up an additional 33% profit by being too hasty.

You won't lose much by waiting a few days, and you might be very glad you did.
