we DID have momentum. It signalled itself on 2/20, and if you got in once the volume/momentum showed itself you could have easily gotten in at $2.00 even if you waited for a while once the volume started to spike...and you could have easily gotten out at $2.25 even if you waited for the volume/momentum to fully verify itself several hours late. That's a 12.5% gain in a little over 2 trading days simply by following the trend. it will now continue it's sideways/slightly down trend until the next short term momentum trade comes through, in which case as long as you go along with the momentum whichever direction it's going you'll be able to pull another 5-15%, and upwards of 35-50% if it's another sponsored article move. OR you can just buy and hold to wait for the buyout/Q3 results/etc etc, in which case there's absolutely no reason for you to care about any of the near term day to day manipulation. Just call that a futures bet, where your money is parked and you can't use it to make any other money in the market while you wait.
It closed at $1.97 less than a week ago. It currently sits at $2.20. It's not giving everything back as you claim. It's called consolidation. This board was better when you weren't around with all of your whining.
