If not VRSN, someone else will. Even with all the criticism surrounding their business model, they continue to make more and more cash. They scaled ehowEnEspanol in Spanish. Now wait until Portuguese (Brazil), French, Chinese, German, Russian, etc. clones arrive.
98% of this stock is held by insiders and institutions, so no wonder why shorts so easily manipulate it. I exited at $8.80, but will be buying a truckload back on margin if shorts manage to get it below $7.40.
