shorts_are, I agree it's frustrating. But the awful performance of BGCP stock almost guarantees the share price will bounce in Jan/Feb as a result of the "January Effect". BGCP has been socked by dwindling trading volume on Wall Street, as well as Hurricane Sandy fallout. BGCP is down but not out, and the stock is poised to bounce strongly into the new year as tax-loss selling abates, and as "fiscal cliff"-related uncertainty lifts, as it likely will next month. I counsel patience with BGC Partners. The company has been holding or gaining market share. Usually the stocks with the worst 52-week price performance tend to outperform strongly in the first three months of the new year. Your patience with BGCP is likely to be rewarded during 1Q 2013.
