abraham..I totally understand what you're saying. My question is now...If I pumped 200 bucks and got 1000 shares, what happens after (if) they emerge? Thanks for your caution.
I believe that the old stock is nullified and new is issued in its place, if the company comes out of BK. Any stock that you currently hold will be worthless.
The bigger question is who continues to buy and why? Are the buyers high stake gamblers who are trying to outwit other people on a day to day basis? Most people should know this stock is worthless in a few months.
If anybody has any insight into this phenomenon, it would be appreciated.
Lindy, I will give you information I received from a Broker, through an aquaintance of mine, concerning the traffic on stock of a bankrupt company. I was told that sometimes at "the end of the day", there are bonds issued for the outstanding shares, at a very reduced value. This information should be taken for what it truly is, second hand to me and third to you. And that it was stated in its origin as only a 'maybe' event. I had asked about this because of traffic not only on U stock, but also on another I owned that actually went up a penny, from 6 to 7, on the last day of it's existence. So far I have received nothing concerning my ownership of this particular stock, and it last traded on Jan 16th when the compoany emerged from BK.
