There was never a news relaese about Lucent's business. I think they do not want the stock to go into the stratasphere so that LU can buy them at a reasonable price. At the same time they give Ripp a sweetheart deal to be the COO McGinn is looking for. He has clout, he is a name, and he has experience. That is my speculation until the COO job is filled. LU and LPTH have alot of common ground. It fits!!!!
I see NUEB dumping for the last few days---weren't they the largest Inst. holder-------the only time I see them stepping in is so the can support the price until they can get out...........just an observation.......I am still watching
