I am of the opinion that MMs want and need to support the pps of AFFY so that it does not fall below 1.01...Why ? Large funds continue to hold AFFY...and have purchased more. I think many are simply in a holding pattern until news comes out...I believe the news will exonerate AFFY from the very unfortnate deaths.
How many days can a stock trade below $ 1.00 before it is in danger of being "delisted" ?
I would like to know that also. Large funds could very easily have averaged down over the last 60 days if they had exceptional confidence in the company/drug. In fact it would be foolish not to. On the other hand, if they felt this was not going to work out well for Affy; they probably would sell and take the loss.
