My shares were taken away from me after I held Orbital stock since March of 1993.
It happened just at the time when future prospects of the company were starting to
look very encouraging. Some companies try to do things to benefit their shareholders.
With Orbital it appears to be more like robbery.
I took a $7,000 loss on my Istar stock about four years ago and after thirty days bought back mostly preferred and some common. I'm up $124,000 on the buy-back right now. Overall I'm very happy with the company.
