    like alot of tech stocks, there's no there there. i'm not sure if my people bought any for us, so far they've been right about facebook and even sirius. we mostly have pretty conservative investments, we're not greedy but i wonder what's going to happen with everything when the criminals at the fed and goldman sucks stop pumping money into the market. it's scary.
    it does explain all these celebs constantly crowing about twitter.

    Another stock pump-and-dump with him getting at prices they public couldn't get!
    This guy could not be any more contemptible if he tried.
    Any other person would have been frog-marched into jail by the SEC.
    The whole existence of satellite radio right now feels like a Buchwald/Karmazin/Stern scheme right now.

    Howard, the guy who exercised his Sirius stock options the first day he was allowed to, then sold them off triggering a prolonged drop in the stock who then wondered why they didn't consider him a partner at work, would never try and manipulate a stock price.

    wait isn't it illegal for him so pump up a stock and then claim he does not directly benefit from it?

    sounds like howard might be in for a chat with the feds

    remember when he use to be soooooo pro the merger but never bothered to tell people that he would get a shit load of money from it??

    I don't know anything about the market but is there any way to check if Stern bought Twitter stock ?? Is that information public record?? also that clip with ralph talking about Mel's announcement sounds so shady to me.

    I'm guessing that is why Stern wasn't allocated any shares off of the IPO. One of the conditions an investment house has when issuing IPO shares is that the customer doesn't "flip" them on the opening. Howard's record for "buy and hold" isn't all that impressive
