Pullback May Spark Investor Interest

In a January 5th downgrade that we published, we noted that TIF was very expensive and had little upside at current levels. After today’s report, the stock is down over 11%, which could spark the interest of investors and fund managers. Although this pullback could be a good opportunity, investors should wait for the stock to bottom out before jumping in.
