    Shares down 3.25% in after hours? I think that is bogus...google finance currently showing down $0.07 after hours and I am surprised it is not UP considering the Q2 production beat and the cash infusion from this sale.

    Michael,
    I think it's a new tactic, or atleast a revival. Seems to be happening across the board to many stocks. Like an algorithm. Price usually spikes back w/in a week.
    Just thinking out loud.

    Nope, it's just an incorrect quote. Google was showing it down a few pennies after hours, and right now, Yahoo finance is showing after hours trading ended at 48.39 Up 0.03 (0.06%). So the -3.25% AH quote was, obviously, totally incorrect.
