Folks, its not often that a set of circumstances comes together like this in my opinion.
The winners typically leap on opportunities like this, while losers become anxious because they imagine uncertainity that does not exist.
Folks, the company immediately came out and explained their perspective on this. I believe if this one-block sale dump had happened at any other time besides 3:30 on a Friday afternoon that the stock would have immediately snapped back a large % prior to the close.
In my opinion, this is a screaming buy opportunity and an opportunity to buy and hold into next year for tax purposes(i.e. move the gain to 2002, or better yet a long term tax gain because I do not believe we will see these levels again)
