Spherix shares plummet

Investors apparently take umbrage over pico cap Spherix's (SPEX) patent litigation with Cisco. Shares are down 22% to $3.50 on a 10x surge in volume.

Analysts are bullish on the firm's business prospects, however. Consensus revenue estimate for this year is $52.3M up more than 8-fold from 2013's estimate of $6.5M.

Considering the company's tiny $17M market cap, investors should be cautious here.

    This market current makes absolutely no sense. Hey SA if you don't know the reason something sold off then you don't have to make a breaking news story about it.

    I believe the main reason behind the selling is the 4.4mio capital increase announced the same day, so its about 27% dilution...

    I found that out later but thank you. Still doesn't change the fact that SA had no idea why the price was selling off.
