Spreading the base generally means more stability - sort of the pyramid concept with the bulk of the weight spread over the greatest area - the more concentrated the shares become the greater the volatility - the pyramid turned upside down. If we're talking spreading millions of institional shares from a handful of co's among 1,000's of small "stake holders" that would generally be bullish..... spreading the base.... If the stock is still a free trading stock in the future. I can't believe where this is..... mkt cap of $14 million sitting on $500 million CASH ! ! ! !
