After what I witnessed last night in the after hours market, I see MAJOR MANIPULATION. I wish the SEC would investigate. Did I lose money? No. Do I wish I'd played at the low end? Yes, but what I saw was a CRIME. I saw thousands and hundreds of people selling into the frenzy of MISREPORTED EARNINGS BY THE MEDIA. Bloomberg TV reported erroneously that Google's earnings were $.45. That was wrong. Call a spade a spade, it was misleading as we all know now.
How many people lost money only to see the MARKET MAKER MANIPULATORS push the stock up again? I daresay a ton of people are disgusted now.
WHY couldn't the earnings be reported as earnings the way the Street would expect it? But, it wasn't---it was meant, imo, to deceive the public out of their shares which they did successfully.
