The bad news is that one must wear the beagle collar. The current runt of the litter is Educational Development Corp., a Tulsa-based seller of children's books at book parties, stores and through the Internet.
Shares of EDUC slipped 4.9 percent last week, although that represented just an 18-cent loss for the stock, which closed Friday at $3.55.
The stock is thinly traded, with just more than 40,000 shares changing hands all week. That's about 60 seconds of average trading for something like Chesapeake Energy.
Although the stock trades in a narrow range — less than $1.50 from its low to its high over the past year — it's currently at the bottom of that range.
