Strange price action considering they came out of the previous quarter with positive guidance for next quarter and a balance sheet indicating good earnings should be forthcoming. Bottom line: I really haven't a clue.

CALM stock rose 1800% from $2.60 to $47 in 10 years and has about the same 10 year stock chart as AMZN.
The difference: CALM sells eggs and pays a nice 5% dividend which is more than AMZN.
Yahoo! does NOT make up insider or any other data. Yahoo! simply pulls the data feed for viewing. Why would an internet portal make up any data on anything? They publish what others and that is the service I appreciate.

During those 18 years of shorting CALM stock has risen from $1.49 to $53.05 or 3557%.

Ref: Saudi Arabia. The oil & gas industry there is owned by the royal family who have doled out up to $40,000 per Saudi over the past several years. Their Finance Minister said today they have about $753 billion in reserves which works out to be about $37,650 per Saudi. Not enough to pay the Saudi Nationals more than another year or so. About 50% of the population of Saudi Arabia are foreign /non Saudi contractors from laborers to company executives. Also, I read someplace that Saudi Arabia had stopped paying some contractors or were delaying payments.
Another question: Why is KMI being hit so hard?
Is it a combination of excessive pipelines and anticipated interest rate rise by the Feds?
Please don't compare CALM excellent management with that Post balance sheet basket case. Are you seriously comparing CALM to POST?
It takes cash from the balance sheet and buys stock.
The balance sheet net shareholder equity and net tangible assets remains unchanged.
Maybe I'm from the old world where one tries to build up a good cushion for a "rainy day".
What if they use the cash and then get 45 million bird flu cases?
They already have an excellent formula to pay 30% in dividends.
When I was an egg producer I used cash to grow but always saved some for a bad year.
Where do all these people come from who want companies to buy back shares? All that does is musical chairs on the balance sheet AND it costs at least some money /staff and computer time to do that and... they pay some fool on Wall Street to book the buy backs.
Which companies will benefit when the conservatives take over and allow exports of unrefined oil & gas ?
India growth rate is now passing China leading to the probability that INDL will be over $20 within 12 months. Likely to have a significant jump in January.
Fundamental reasons why India is benefiting from today's economy:
1. Metals prices plummeting making manufacturing growth in India more likely.
2. Energy prices plummeting gives India, a country dependent on imports an advantage.
3. Biggest long term macro economic advantage India has over Europe, Russia and China: demographics, democracy, capitalism, transparency and education levels. India has a surplus of English speaking, highly educated young population whereas Europe, Russia, Japan, China populations are declining.
4. India has far better understanding of USA and Europe than other emerging economies. After all, India engineers, computer science and health care professionals have learned from USA and Europe over the most recent decade.

You are right about two players (duopoloy) which is very unlikely to receive regulatory approval. There have been takeover attempts recently that were disapproved due to having too few competitors. One was in the cable industry and one in telecommunications (there have been several others in various industry groups not approved due to resulting lack of competition).
