Stock price? Howard complained that he got stock before the share price crashed. He's said some of the players at Sirius made a shitload on the business side. He sued but lost over not getting a bonus for the added XM subscribers. Maybe he decided a mainstream show with constant guest promotions will drive the stock price up and he can make an exit. The stock broke $4, he probably needs it to go to $6 to get back to where he got it (guess).
