Perhaps English is not your native language. Please read your table again and notice under "Action" it states "Dropped." A reading comprehension course would tell us that would mean JMP stopped covering VDSI on that date. It simply indicates that $40 was the previous price target Before it was dropped. All my comments in the referenced posting still apply. No charge for the tutorial.
It was totally bogus. When brokers/analyst companies have an analyst leave with no replacement (for at least a while anyway), they frequently drop coverage of that analyst-following's companies until a new analyst is hired. JMP Had a $40 target for VDSI, but that analyst likely left JMP Securities recently.
