well my previous attempt at this was deleted. Its now after RTH, so I am not trying to manipulate the market or anything. As I understand the USA legal definition, I am not in possession of misappropriated information, but I am in possession of apparently non-public information. There is no tender offer involved that I know of. The SEC couldn't care less. There are some really strong feelings on this stock so I am just going to say this: Look harder. There is more at play here than just the aftershock of a hefty earnings surprise. I will post more if the mods allow me to. Mods, if you delete this you really do not give a shit about your traders here. At the very least, no one should be trading this stock (notice I am not even saying long or short) if they aren't aware of the current rumors.
