In your DREAMS. The US Gov't would never allow a foreign ownership buy X on NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUES alone. I can't believe all the guillible DREAMERS that think that this COULD EVEN BE IN THE REALM OF REALITY, but that shows you the intelligence exhibited on this board.
One thing for sure is that the SEC and DOJ needs to find out who started this ABSURD RUMOR and PROSECUTE THEM ACCORDINGLY !!!!!!!!!
IMHO the purpose of the rumor was to clear out the value of the August 50 puts and calls. Meanwhile, the stock has rallied close to upper resistance. Between now and Friday, after a lot of scared short covering and closing of options positions, will the rumor be denied in time for X to change directions. This is an opportunity, especially when former bears on X turn into bulls and bulls from when the stock was over 60 get complacent and don't bail out at what could be their best exit price for a long time. This is addressed to the writer of the post above mine. Any weird attacks will be ignored.
