    • Rubbish.

    • yearly boosted up from 2,28 to 2.59.......a .31 increase:) but next qtr from .59 to .52 a 7 decrease :(
      so investors dropped thier shares because the analysts said so. no, im not buying that, sorry. this is more like a bear raid designed to clear out short positions. what happens is large funds have 10-15% stop-losses set that trigger when stocks drop past thier setting points. some collusion goes on, oh no you dont mean something illegal, OH YES I DO, and a few large holders drop thier positions taking out the stops and causing mass fear selling which in turn triggers massive margin calls that cant be met by most small investors and down down down we go. the shorts will cover monday along with some bargain buying and up we go. thank you
