It's simply the way the "market" works. Somebody has to make money and if all stocks were perfectly priced no one would ever make any money. It's quite interesting to see almost ANY stock over the course of a year. With amazing consistency there is a 50% or greater differential between the 52 week high and low. Why is this when there is no way the actual intrinsic value of a company can fluctuate that much. Established, well-capitalized companies with good customers, products, prospects - you name it and they almost all have the 50% phenomenon. It's all perception, manipulation, quarterly obsession etc. and rarely intersects with the actual intrinsic value of the company. The same is true right now with CRUS - games and manipulation. My guess is this is the bottom of this cycle or close to it and buying here will reap the rewards of the 50% upswing over the coming year.
