Just last month, one of those bulls, Thekills, tapped the stock as a particularly attractive bargain opportunity:
Everywhere in the media you hear the quotes about major [low volumes ]. [NYSE Euronext] pays a nice dividend. Sentiment is way too negative. Recent troubles in other market places may help it. Its derivative products volumes hold up quit well. Think [stock exchanges] in general should be bought in the current environment. Also think that Online Brokers might be of interest currently.
If you want market-topping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite its five-star rating, NYSE Euronext may not be your top choice.
