Of course you're tired---I wonder if the CEO/CFO got tired and frightened at the prospect of the removal.
I hate to say this but "retire for personal reasons" always means removal for causes we'd rather not muddy the waters with--why this is some big revelation BTSOOM.
They did NOT short their own stock, unless somebody has an Uncle Ralfie account somewhere ---that is so far fetched it gives more credence to panic being the dominant theme these past weeks.
Price Waterhouse was not asked by the SEC, or my mama, to audit this firm. THE FIRM chose these guys and called what we used to call in Vietnam friendly fire down on their own position. This is an act of courage and sacrifice, one of the few in the admittedly slipshod --these days--way of treating income.
Shoulda happened last year. Happening this year. Everybodys fire sale is someone elses buying op. All I know is that the calls are not deteriorating and the puts today not flying. Somebody thinks enough is enough. Like Dennis Miller, I could be wrong, but I don't think so.
