The nice increase in msft (and intc) on Wednesday was quickly followed by bad news after hours which then was followed a rather quick downgrade from Goldman Sachs. Its easy to picture Goldman pushing the stock up then entering a large short order knowing bad news was coming (before any retail investors) and then bolstering the downward price movement with a rare 'sell' recommendation. The big banks and others on wall street have shown they are fully capable of flat out deception and chicanery and I would guess not
much has changed. Ambition and hard work are good; excessive greed isn't.
