i hope this goes much lower before the company places those orders. The lower the price the more they take out of the float. The shorts will just get fried the further they drive this down. But, that's easy for me to say since i don't have a position yet. I do feel for those who are in the red. This will rebound strong, and soon.
I hope they would not be so stupid as to accept only $10 per share. I would vote down anything under $18. A special dividend would be an ok move, but a regular dividend would be even better, even a few cents a quarter would scare any short.
I would encourage some communications to investor relations and let them know how the individual investor is feeling about the share price, this crapola has been going on for over a year now. Leadership is setting themselves up with a nice stock compensation plan, time for them to earn it and get something back to the shareholders who have taken an absolute beating.
