I had something similar happen in reverse recently with a different company. I was talking to a person in investor relations and commented that it appeared the company was going to preannounce. They replied that the company wouldn't be preannouncing and then ... five days later they preannounce and the stock goes down 25%. This definitely cost me some money. I'm not in good health at the moment but I need to do something about this. I haven't been a fan of calling investor relations ever since Regulation FD went into effect circa 2002 but this is just too much.
