$32.45 x 1.25 = 40.56. It's getting very close to parity here, and BRY was trading near this price quite recently. It would not surprise me to see LNCO pop another couple of bucks this week. No guarantees, of course.
Class action ambulance chasers file regularly, provided they can find a credible lead plaintiff (which most of them could not in this instance). Given that there was never malfeasance, negligence, or accounting irregularities, it would have made for a very tough case. You can't really collect in court if your argument is that you lost money on a stock because the company got bad press. It's not as though Linn management asked for this, or could control Hedgeye/Barron's.
