  • Going To Zero: Why More Public Companies Than Ever Before Will Be Worth Nothing [View article]
    quibbling over fundamental/research by the author isn't the point of the article. what data can you really trust today anyway?
    the last line is the point of the article. makes sense in this dragged down market/economy that less stumbling companies will get bought up. IMHO.

    cos i agree with your explanation. on target. a company doesn't care what the market float fiat share certificates are going for unless, of course, the company it self owns a whole bunch of it...and then they have a paper loss. further, a company of this size doesn't "finance/expand" via shareholder price of the usually borrows. this could be a slick way for the company to gain back a lot of cheaply priced shares...and besides, in this day and age, if a company goes belly up, common stock holders never get in on the last supper leftovers...even bondholders get the shaft in these modern times. common shareholders> you don't anything in the own a piece of paper. that's it.
