Hedge funds control stocks on Wall Street that they have a vested interest in. They were a part of the wall street meltdown recently. They've been known to set up companies for takeovers at low cost. Look in to it. Griping all day about market makers manipulating the price will get you nothing but hot air. They all work in tandem. Look who the interim CEO is right now. Hedge Fund manager. Be careful folks and keep an eye on the money or before you know it it will disappear.
