Anyone see the 1,000,000 shares at the bid Friday?
The meaning of that bid was to incite a buying frenzy ahead of some relatively bad news. The exact same thing happened right before Perifosine dumped, they had lured new investors with similar "buy" scares.
If they wanted the shares they would have taken them. They actually intend to lock in a short position after a senseless run-up in PPS.
