    The CEO of the NYSE is saying that some of the (PG) trades today won't stand. I wonder if the same will apply to these companies as well. My next question is what about all of the folks that stopped out of long positions in these stocks?

    And other shares briefly went down to a cent. I wonder who was on the other side of those trades? I wouldn't mind buying these shares for pennies a share. I wonder who the Market Makers are and what they were doing in all this.

    they should cancel all trades after that first erroneous monster trade! All trades after that were affected by this in a major way!
