I realize that 'in general' the stock market can sometimes be no better than a crap shoot, its vagaries not for the faint of heart.

That said, does anyone have any insight that would explain why a company's very positive financial report would cause the stock price to take a dive? I notice that there has been much more than 'average' activity on the stock I'm talking about. Would that precipitate the drop? Or did the drop precipitate the activity?

disclosure: I have a position in this company due to acquisition.
