First, there is my main question: even if the drop is really only about $3, isn't that an over-reaction?

Only you can judge that. If it matters, all the restaurants that I follow have been beaten down the last few days, and any hint of negative news is going to be cause for severe downdraft.

Second, why are the data messed up in this way?

Happens sometimes. I had a bad quote on a retailer too yesterday.

What was that real closing price for CHUX on August 1?

When in doubt, buy a WSJ for today and look. Either that, or in a month or so check the historical quotes on Yahoo.

And finally, how does that little tenth of a cent get in there anyway?

No idea!
