Large investment companies such as Lehman have rules that regulate how quickly they can sell stock holdings.
Any idea whether these limits change in bankruptcy?
Any thoughts on a temporary stock drop fueled by massive selling of Lehman stock holdings to repay account holders and debt holders?
Will the majority of stock accounts be managed by Lehman under bankruptcy until the account holders pull out, or will the accounts be sold to another bank? I suppose a lot of this has to do with whether or not Lehman is expected to emerge from bankruptcy as a stand-alone company, but somehow I think its doubtful we'll see Lehman again.

Perhaps someone on this board has experience in the matters of investment banks... I think this may have a lot to do with a temporary depression in price of all Lehman-held stocks.
