News items and price action from Friday’s trading.  Between the Cowan conference and ICR the news flow for the balance of the week should pick up significantly.

  • SBUX also gained on accelerating volume, ending the session up 2.6%.
  • COSI again gained on accelerating volume, its shares rose 3.4% to finish the week up 29.4%.  I continue to like this stock and believe improvement in the company’s fundamentals remains
