nor sure how SNDK soaks up investor money to subsidize their products. if you buy a stock on the open market, the cash oes to the institution or person selling the stock - and that is no longer SNDK.
SNDK will be back, it is a bad time for every company that relies on consumer spending. the gadget market slows down with consumer confidence, upgrade cycles slow down and such. companies like SNDK have the muscle and cash to wait it out and benefit from the upturn - which will come. $70 again? unlikely. but the 40s will be easily reached when the market turns some.
damn the whole housing mess, most avoidable and most harebrained bubble ever. no one helped investors after the internet bubble. no one should help out those who overextended themselves in housin - let the market clean itself out rapidly, now, then it'll be over in a year tops.
