Shares are down 0.5% at $24.97 in the pre-market trading but shares were up around $24.50 before that report came out at the end of trading yesterday.
SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) is up over 1.15 at $123.01 on nearly 1 million shares already and the market has not even opened. The gold bugs are at it again….
THQ Inc. (NASDAQ: THQI) reduced its guidance, a surprise considering the news flow, and it said its Red Faction game will be out in May-2011. Shares are down 3.75% at $3.59 pre-market. This guidance is still not a huge issue if you consider its cash and where the company has been.
