i recall when the stock was upgraded and i bought more. then the stock started trading down for about a week. i could not understand that. now its all on the table and i like you and many others are screwed. i agree with another post that this is a poor time to offer stock. but 8.5 is a big return to get in onat these prices. us, we are under water-so many ways to get tatuted in the market. this stock was tradind above 30 at one point.
