    Fine company, broken stock

    As I said in an earlier post, what a broken stock means to me is one where the company's value, earnings and prospects no longer correlate with the stock price. I think most investors like to think of a stock's price as the "truth" about a company. It should reflect all that is known about a company. However, I think if you beat a stock savagely enough, you can uncouple the stock price from the company it represents. Then, changes in the price of the stock no longer reflect the "truth" about a company and become meaningless. A good analogy would be water-boarding prisoners. After water-boarding a prisoner a couple of hundred times, there is no "truth" to the words coming out of the prisoners mouth.
