If hedge funds are controlling this stock then we owe them our gratitude for moving it upward so far and so quickly. I personally give the company some credit, but, hey, that's just me.
However, biglefthook, you stated in an earlier post that the hedge funds are always trying to prove you wrong, so in a way you control this stock. You're a very powerful person with lots of sway over our money.
The hedge crowd followed Phelps Dodge over to BGC when their favorite ticker in the universe, FCX, sold it off a couple years back. General Cable is starting to make the PD deal work, despite lousy market conditions.
Of course the hedge funds control BGC!! But not any more than Michelle controls Barack. Sit tight, there's plenty for everyone. Everyone who sticks with BGC, that is.
