This is a buying opportunity plain and simple. Shorts are making a little money by scaring the longs (oh my gosh something must be wrong!) and people who buy into strong earnings and guidance at a discount will be rewarded over the next few weeks as the company is growing revenues and earnings much faster than its valuation. Trying to find a fundamental reason for a sudden 16% drop on solid earnings and guidance is comical as it could just have easily went the other way if "they" wanted it to.
If you think this is manipultion & logically knew it was coming than why did'nt you sell earlier & buy it back today?
I've seen stockholders play this card a million times on down days but it always gets back around to expectations & numbers
