When breifingdotcom IN Play lists something like they did it causes day traders to pounce
Briefingdotcom listed the NOK stock buy back on INPLAY. That is a board for take out rumors and day trading info. Most time when a co. like Nok takes out another company with stock, that would make the stock go down. The other side of the coin is it is to prevent a hostile take over. Their patents are in play. So, I have seen things like this happen since 2009 or 2010 after briefingdotcom reporting. They do not stick around long though. It is a good thing when your invested in a company that people want or parts at least. The buying someone else with stock, I do not know.
