Kudos to you all who sold and are re-buying. That is kind of foresight I lack. It has had a hell of a run up which garnered attention, so in addition to people just cashing some out on a good run, short term players were attracted and are now done their short term play it seems.

At the end, a drop like this (as high as 10% down at one point) is ridiculous, and just shows markets can be irrational and tend to overreact in the short term.

It isn't the first time I have seen stocks punished for choosing to garner more capital, that is why I pointed it out.

"Pricing it in" wasn't really the right way to put it, as others pointed out. If the company can use this extra capital to accelerate growth, this day will be nothing more than a blip down the line.
