trade. even though you never post any real facts that can back a short thesis you some how think that no news is good news. If vhc doesnt react to an Avaya settlement its because the shorts are doing whatever they have to to keep a lid on vh,illegally I might add..An Avaya settlement is just one more validation to vhc patents,thats the key point there. That will leave just Cisco and Apple,the 2 biggest crooks on the block and perhaps the 2 behind all this shorting. Its getting easier and easier to see what is going on here and how vhc is being manipulated. That will come to an end soon. If I were you I would try and steal a few shares from someone who gets scared by the short tactics and tuck them away so your boss doesnt see the certs.
