    So now that it's down.....maybe it's time to buy???
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2 about anything. I may however, give a nickel

    Interesting thing is that the stock went down in July, the same month the Palm deal closed. Almost as if it looked bad to stockholders.

    But it really went for a tumble after Hurd left, and after they bought 3PAR (of course, spending $3B on two companies, 3PAR and Palm, probably put the shareholders on edge a bit.

    Exactly. Buy it now at $42/share and sell it after the PalmPad comes out (among other things) for probably $45+/share

    The drop was in August, when Hurd left. Went from 46.30 to 40 in a few days. It's dropped lower since then, and somewhat recovered, but has never recovered to pre-Apotheker levels. July 1st the stock price was 42.89. By July 31st, it was even higher by over $3. I think the problems right now are mostly due to investors being unsure about Apotheker. I bought in soon after Hurd left, expecting the stock to recover after the investor "shock", but it's disappointing to see it still trudge along.
