Hope some of the stockholders sold off. It might be the most they will make on it in a while.

But really, who in the world would take that seriously?

People post stupid things in the Yahoo Finance forums all the time and people silly things like this suddenly have an impact. The only thing is that it generally only happens with cheap stocks where you can make a short sell and a wad of cash. Stupid day traders!

Stating the rumour was "silly rumour mongering." The fact that the market reacted to the "silly rumour mongering" is legitimate news.

You were right about what, that there was a rumor? So what? Were you one of the people who bought PKS shares? That would just make you a seriously uneducated investor.

This was a rumor floating around wall street not just on yahoo boards. Also article below says that SF is putting out feelers to sell the company.
