I know that Delta's stock (symbol DALRQ.PK) will be pretty useless when they eventually emerge from Ch.11 and any activity in the stock at this point is not a good measure of the company's performance but the stock has shot up 25-30% just today in the first three hours of trading..it had been rising a little the past few days (presumably due to lower fuel prices) but nothing like today's activity...Anyone know what's happening? New merger rumors again?

Too bad I had bought $100 worth at $0.80 and sold it two days ago at $0.92, too bad I couldn't wait three more hours! My luck!

What you see here is day traders buying and selling left and right, most likely they are the ones causing the spikes to happen.

Well, DALRQ.PK is at it again.....trading volume today is already triple the normal average, and it has gone up another 25% today so far to $1.38, only 1 hour 15 minutes after the market opened....And no, oil is not a factor as crude futures are actually up a little at this point....

And tulips were selling for huge prices in AMS at one time.

It's all just the bigger fool theory in action.

In the long run, Vegas would be a better place to "invest" your money.

It cannot just be a spike as this is a huge change, and highest in more than a year. I think this is a sign of Delta´s recovery from bankruptcy , as well as investors´confidence that international expansion will bring delta out of the darkness.

Trust me, I'm not even remotely contemplating investing in the existing DAL stock - just curious as to what the rumors and scuttlebutt are out there that are driving the significant buying in the last two days.....someone or some people are doing a lot of buying...it's now up to $1.48, i.e., up 35% since Friday.

Reminds me of the joke.

Do you know how to make a million dollars in trading airline stocks?


Start with a billion dollars.

WorldTraveler is buying up shares...I kid, I kid.

The trade volume spike makes me think day traders with some bad (or maybe good) rumours but with "penny" stocks you never know.

I'd only buy with "play" money or Vegas money as mentioned above not for anything needed in the short term. .02  Wink

It has nothing to do with what you said. As when DL emerges from bankruptcy the stock they now have most likely will be voided and they will start fresh. Though believe what you want to. Mom always said, "A fool and his money was soon parted!"

I can't believe it....I've held on to this junk stock for awhile now and I sell it literally minutes before it practically doubles in value!

Did US stock get voided if so, what were the consequences to the shareholders?

Both US and UA voided old stock once emerging from bankruptcy and issued new stock.

Looks like a good time to short the stock and use those profits to buy the new DAL when issued.

Yes their stock got cancelled. Basically you see the shares in your portfolio one day and the next, they disappear.

At $1.60 now; that's up close to 45% just today. Trading volume is in the 11.3 million range (average volume is 1.3 million a day); 52 week high was only at $1.19

This is a good question whether you could actually do that or not. It's been too many years since I knew all the rules. I believe you can't short the stock of a bankrupt company, because the stock doesn't qualify to be margined. But who knows, rules change, perhaps you can now.

After doing some checking, I do believe you are right. They do have options trading though. So it looks like a good time to buy some January 2007 or 2008 put options!
