Well for one a news article in the N.Y.Times started it. I had to put in a stop loss in after hearing about it, as I knew it would tank on the Sunday news release. That was the first attack on it. Look at this chart to see it gap down on Monday April 29, after the bad news was released.

The article below will explain better than I can but people with short interests have been known to decimate price though manipulation with some false information.

IMHO, this is a great buy down below 30. I had a GTC order in at 25 but canceled it because of the weakness. I really don't like catching falling knives much LOL. Now shortly, I'm going to buy it back and hold it long term because I think this is a very good value play. Over the next 10 years AGM can be an easy 10 bagger.
