    This will be a great test ot two competing theories

    One theory says that a price over $5 attracts institutional buyers which increases liquidity and generates more interest in the stock which helps to maintain a price over $5.

    The other theory says that for a small, thinly-traded stock that's currently unprofitable, perception is the most important factor. That is, if the perception was that the stock was only worth $1 or less, then a reverse-split won't change the perception and people simply won't want to pay $5 or more for a stock that, in their mind, is still only worth $1 or less. So the price will tend to head back down toward $1 (with occasional upticks on news, etc.). However, market cap is a factor here, and that will tend to keep the price closer to $5 for a while, but with this theory perception will eventually win out.

    In the case of VSCP, I tend to favor the 2nd theory, and think that the price will drop below $5 until we see some solid profits (if we see profits).
