Then, do what? Pay the lawyer hefty fees so that he/she can be happy?
Gosh, I can't believe that people think that the stock is being manipulated. It's down for a reason and when the CEO comes out and says that they are looking for strategic opportunities, that means they are in big trouble.
Manipulation can happen for a few days or even weeks but not several months! When you buy a stock, you need to understand that it can go down to 0 (in reality, not many do) and there is nothing much you can do other than sell it for a loss (that's why you need to have tight stops) and move on. If it's not your cup of tea, then CDs are the way to go.
AAPL and GOOG are killing RIMM and NOK and if you can't understand that, then it's gonna be a tough road.
