I honestly think someone fat finger the AH $2.41 trades and that got some bandwagoners going briefly. That being said, I would LOVE to see short sellers roasted if there actually is news, not because I have a lot of skin in the game here but because I hate their crooked games.
I'm more of a BCLI believer but this is a pretty amazing thing to watch. The manipulation machine is playing this like a fiddle. You can just imagine the how it was all set up. AF and friends prepare their smear campaign, big money prepares their short play, they tank the stock, regular investors push the panic button. One side loses big, the other wins big. It would be a thing of beauty if it weren't so crooked.
