Just an observation. A few months ago someone who follows me was very excited at MAT maybe seeing a double bottom
opportunity. I maintained that HAS looked much better and was a better play. Often, people look for a laggard in a group, looking for a catch-up play, but I don't think it often works out so well. This is the first time, I've actually compared two charts - a clear leader to a clear laggard. While MAT did have a nice 35% move quickly from it's low, it's taken back a good deal of it and is only up 15% now while HAS, measured from the same period is up 28%. I guess the lesson here is play laggards if you must, but play 'em tight.
