The insider trading in this stock was obvious, yet nothing will be done. Market conditions hadn't really changed, yet this stock was down 20% in less than 2 weeks leading up to earnings, which missed, badly. That doesn't happen unless people are selling on information that hasn't been disclosed yet. Wall St is the most corrupt place on Earth. Chicago and NJ politics couldn't hold a candle to it.
The nonstop selling should have tipped you off that something wasn't quite right even if you don't have any inside information. For all the talk about how the "pros" manipulate stocks, when you have that much red in a short period of time leading up to earnings, you need to consider that not everything is roses.
