    I was wondering if anyone out there snagged MMM for a quick pop.

    If so, what news source did you use for the heads up?

    I got .10 on 1000 and 1 handle on the spoos. I actually feel like an idiot considering... I use Briefing.

    Do you have the actual time stamp on the Bloomberg news release???

    I think I saw it instantly. Of course, I happened to be watching MMM at that moment and my news source is not even an eye movement away from MMM.

    Actually, Ogg called out the news story and as I was hammering my buy keys I saw the headlines halfway down the page on Bloomberg (so I assume Bloomberg was first).
