The way the volume has dropped off a cliff is a huge red flag. This stock was being manipulated as anyone could tell with the big volume and big moves. It looks like the people who drove it up, got out. Typical pump and dump. They are late with their earnings which is NEVER good. Good luck if you are hanging on, you are going to need it.
Sorry but you are incorrect with your assumptions.
Let me use JVA as an example one week before earnings were announced, column all but dried up. There were a few days that traded 30,000 shares which is unheard of. Fast forward 1 week earnings announced early 5 million shares traded. Things are never what they seem, Tea is destined for new highs, this is what separates investors from traders.
I keep hoping we'll new buyers will want in, seeing JVA rise now is making me mad. Been in and out of JVA, watched it crash and now it's coming back strong while we sit here each day. Still holding, like this company and expect a good return.
