Manipulation is/has become standard (The SEC police are either spread too thin or stocks like PRA and ATRS just don't hit their radar.). I was somewhat surprised that ATRS actually went DOWN after FDA approval (Not immediately, but still...). That leaves the question: Will PRAN behave similarly? Run up to results and decline afterwards? Don't know, but I do know that others know what I know and will sell pre-announcement; therefore ,(you got it!) may have to follow suit just to avoid getting hit. Crazy investment world (Of course, some will have gotten ahead of these comments and the rabbit hole could get even more convoluted).
The amount of frustration is definitely showing in the stock. Buyers have turned into sellers, and now price behavior suggests waiting on the sidelines a little while longer. The expected upward moving failed, so now the stock looks like it just wants to drift, barring any positive news.
I got really upset with the goings on last week but now I figure we just have to let the big boys play it out, there is nothing the normal retail guy can do here except watch the fire-power working away. Will be interesting to see the new holdings report next time.
This thing better be at 6 for my birthday at the beginning of Feb. Otherwise.........
