iGate – OUCH!

First the bad news.  iGate (IGTE) which is about 5 % of the BIA Global Strategy Model Portfolio, got hit for a 19.4% loss yesterday on news the company is making a bid for a much larger rival.

The good news (I know this is a bit of a stretch), the decline represented mostly a give back of what was  an unrealized gain.  Coming into this morning, the position was slightly underwater from the original purchase.  If the stock can mount a bit of a “dead cat” bounce, we might hold on for a bit, but there is no denying that the position in the BIA Global Strategy Portfolio is on “Double Secret Probation,” and could very well taken out of the model soon.
