Unofficial Breakdown of WCG Shareholders

85% - People with LARGE unrealized capital losses.

10% - People under the age of 16 that don't know they own the stock. Parents still hoping it will miracously take their children through college.

3% - People that didn't realize they got some shares when WMB spun the company off. Apparently with all the selling all those that were aware of the stock they received have since gotten rid of it.

2% - People hoping to have bought at the bottom btwn the 1.25-1.5 range

Then there are the countless others with wortless options.

I'm in the 85% range and also the 2% range. Maybe b/c so many of my shares are in the 85% this post had a slightly vexatious slant to it.
