    Serious question guys:

    Although I do admire the tenacity of the bullish posters here (I used to be tenacious like that when I was younger), I just can't help thinking that if the big money agreed with your projected outcome that the share price would demonstrate at least a little relative strength at this juncture...but it's not. I have read that you all believe that there is some market maker manipulating the share price for the benefit of himself, bidders, hedge funds, the Easter Bunny, etc. One thing I can assure is that the only "market makers" here are HFT computers that are merely trying to profit from sub-minute positions. The shares are trending lower because sellers are inclined to sell more aggressively than buyers are inclined to buy.

    As your local Kitten would say" "Think about it?"

    • Thanks. I'll forward your post to my partners.

    • I do not work for Morgan Stanley now and have not worked there since well before I began posting on Yahoo. Furthermore, my postings on Yahoo are not in violation of any laws, policies or guidelines.

      Well they are at three of the firms I have friends working at. They are literally not even allowed to write about investments in emails. I fail to see how you can get away with what you are doing if you are indeed a money manager. Sorry, but if it is true you work for a firm, it is highly a conflict of interest that you are #1 giving advice away for free, and #2 taking positions that may or may not what you are doing at your investment firm.

    • Never a dull moment in the mail room....

    • Just extremely bad judgement lol.

    • You manage other peoples money and you post on stock msg boards. Sorry but I'm glad you are not managing MY money. Is that even allowed??

    • lindmeritage, you stated, "Indeed, I have been engaged in M&A as either an investment banker or merger arb. since 1980."

      You also stated on Sept. 20th, "Re: Is that you Lind?
      No, that is not I. I have posted on Yahoo since 1998, and this is the only username I have ever had or ever used. Cheers.

      Yes, I manage investment portfolios. lindmeritage


      With all due respect, those that I know that are in the "business" are not allowed to post on stock message boards because there are ethical reasons that could be construed as a conflict of interest involved and they tell me that their companies made them sign agreements of understanding that they are not allowed to do so. You also just stated in the last few minutes that you are still in the business and you manage investment portfolios.

      So are you saying that Morgan Stanley does not have any type of policy like this or one that is similar ? Based upon your own posts you have been posting on these yahoo stock boards for 13 years, since 1998.

      Thanks for your civil replies because I am trying to understand why you are allowed to do so and others are not.

    • Yes, I manage investment portfolios.

    • so you are still in the business, just not Morgan Stanley ?
