Interesting consideration which could include management taking this private. The savings with no need to comply with all the filing requirements, in other words expense the SEC requires of public companies would be beneficial. Once in turnaround mode whether it is a year or two, they can go public once again. I believe such course would yield tens or hundreds of millions for the privateers depending upon the timing and future fundamentals. But you do understand, this is a very speculative situation.
It isn't uncommon for professional shorts to supply news outlets with reams of negative data with the intent of getting that news outlet to agree with that data. MF is compliant while they tell you what they feel is where you should allocate your money at the end of their article. I've noticed this type of knee-jerk trashing by MF repeatedly over the years. For those looking for a probable high risk, high return scenario, check out DRYS. Never, never in such a beaten down situation go all in. Keep some cash sidelined if you get in too early. Disclosure: I own several thousand shares of DRYS.
I doubt that is as obvious as you hope to make it. The shuffling of assets and debt has resulted in a mass exit by fund managers. Those numbers are public at the Nasdaq website. Retail money too has been exiting because of tax loss selling. Maybe it's bottomed but maybe not.
