It is clear the (exchanges) NYSE holds the price steady while the NYSE sells shares in by the thousands. No, this game is not rigged! Then after those huge sums are sold, the price drops. Too much bloodshed for such a green day. Never goes up without giving it back after lunch.
This counts as a good day for VMW. 3 to 5 % down days should resume shortly. Can't wait for the inevitable warning! Expectations are already built in for the purported 2nd half resurgence that management foolishly promised.
