Hi all! This is my first post here, I was referred here by splotto in an ld post over on the DRiP Investment Companies board. I was just looking through some of the posts here to get a feel for the board, and this one grabbed my attention.

I think if this situation presented itself to me, I would keep my shares and also short sell the company, making money either way, and covering my shorts quickly. (Note: I have never shorted a stock before, so I am not sure if this strategy is feasible or not.) I notice that imClone shares aren't doing so bad recently, so a bit of bad news isn't a good resaon to sell what I already own, but it wouldn't hurt to short some on the side to make a bit of cash.
