    Priced at $6 fwiw. Pretty stupid on their part IMHO.

  4. P/S almost 7.0, negative earnings, D/E > 1, Current Ratio < 1.0 and now this adding insult to injury.

    I'm surprised it hasn't dropped more!

  6. What a shafting. They walked it up on no volume, couldnt rip off the street, so took what they could get.

    This was a reverse 1-20 split just recently, which explains much.
