After reading the Citizensforethics article, it is 100% clear to me that this is just an advancement on the tactics being used by the dark side. If there were not such obvious entanglements between RTRX (the stock, not necessarily the company although that too) and the known short FELONS perpetrating this advanced tactic, I might have thought that there was a future threat lurking (and even that was unlikely)...Now that the players have been revealed and especially knowing RTRX's horrific financial condition, there is ZERO DOUBT what this is all about. With an extremely long term view on QCOR, I see this as extraordinarily bullish news that the shorts are resorting to such sophisticated tactics.
They have to be reaching intense points of desperation.
Sad part is that some folks are actually buying RTRX today. Stock up a whole $.30. Guessing QCOR recovers by next week and RTRX will be below $7 by then as well. Martin will probably have made money by being on the other side of the trades. Bunch of #$%$; unfortunately too small for the SEC to care to do anything about them unless they get pressure from a Congressman or outside political group.
