Background: About an hour after today's close, RIMM's earnings report still hadn't been released yet. Then came the headline (on briefing) I'm paraphrasing- "RIMM to delay earnings release due to options backdating problems". The stock instantly dropped from 86 to 80 in AH trading. Then, less than a minute later comes the blowout earnings release and the stock rockets straight up into the mid-90's. A few minutes later, briefing was kind enough to mention that the first headline was a mistake (Gee- ya think?) Then Briefing erases both the fake headline and the correction, as if both had never happened. My questions: 1) Did this fake headline appear anywhere other than briefing? <b>Was Bloomberg's news on RIMM accurate?</b> 2) Where the fuck does <b>fake news</b> come from? Anyone else get the feeling this was anything but an honest mistake? IMO, this looks like a deliberate manipulation, designed to create an opportunity for the manipulators to pick up some cheap stock.
