The lojas issue is clearly something they have not wanted to touch until everything is in place. As for timeframe? Who knows? At long last, it does appear that this saga is nearing the final act..
I understand. I thought that was the most plausible explanation initially, but the pattern doesn't make sense. It does not show show up that way every day, only once or twice a month, and it is always for just one day and then it reverts to a normal quote.
Thank you for your reply. I cannot say why this keeps happening. Something in the database from our data provider is confusing the two. There is no relationship between the two stocks. I have reported it as a persistent issue, so that the developers will try to find the root cause of the problem.

Got a generic response from TDA, but yahoo will not let me post it.. Basically said that she could not find any info on BLIAF and directed me to the Bell Aliant website. I am trying again with more pointed questions and screenshots.
TDA is once again showing BLIAQ as down -177,192% or -$26.04. This is the difference between the last BLIAQ trade and BLIAF.
I have sent them an inquiry as to why this keeps happening.
How old is that? It is disgusting what these hedge fund guys are able to accomplish in our judicial system. Highway robbery.
Looks bleak, but I will be holding these lotto tickets just in case. I just can't believe the spectrum valuations are anywhere close to market.
We don't know what the revisions were... The last one we saw was going to jettison commons and issue new shares to the creditors and preferreds right?
I think there could be something to this. Charlie needs to tip his hand.
Maybe they will finally answer some of the questions that have been discussed ad nauseum on this board. I noticed they just issued another PR stating they will close even more UK stores..
This is beyond ridiculous at this point.
It has been a while since I looked into this, but I think that is correct. Lojas is a grocery or dept store I believe that had a BB inside. I suspect those numbers are for their entire operations. I seem to recall that was one of the sticking points in their dispute with Dish. Dish wanted a % of their entire revenues and not just those related to the BB component.
Lots going on in the last month.
NFLX pump and dump.
BB online relaunch
Dish statement re: spectrum and their vision
All bode well imo.
New WSJ article on the Dish news feed:
Also in the interview, Mr. Ergen finally gave a clearer explanation at something that has puzzled observers: what he was aiming for with Dish’s 2011 acquisition of video rental chain Blockbuster out of bankruptcy. He said the strategy all along was not so much to create a Netflix competitor as to use the video retailer’s real estate for selling Dish’s satellite TV service and its yet-to-be-launched wireless network. He said the delay in getting FCC approval for Dish’s spectrum plans set back the Blockbuster idea (indeed, Blockbuster recently announced plans to close 300 more stores, and it’s down to 500 physical stores from the 1,700 it was operating when Dish acquired it). “We didn’t have enough guts to go there and try” the Netflix model, Mr. Ergen said, because Netflix already had the first-mover advantage. “I feel stupid that we didn’t do [the Netflix model] first,” he said, adding that what Netflix is doing with its new original series “House of Cards”—dumping the entire season of episodes at once online—is “brilliant.”
