I would expect a run to $2.00 about 3 PM. Yes this is manipulation at its worst and probably the reason for the gov't investigation. I don't think Perito or Jonnie have anything to fear but some others may.
I'm not sure what you mean. The MM's have said for a while they have 30 million short shares. I don't short stocks, but if I did, this would be an easy short. No one wants to buy at these prices, at least not enough people. So until then, it's pretty clear what the MM's have to do. The barnacle shorts make their e z $ and longs keep getting screwed. Believe me, I've seen much worse cases of fraud than this. This really could be a lot worse.
