I remember Hochchild Mining. I was invested in Andina Minerals. They literally stole the company with the collusion of Andina board and management who went along with the stink bid. I made a couples cents but was not happy. The stock was pushed down in price from around 80 cents to 40 cents before it was bought. It was selling for $6 a share not too long before that. Some people really got burnt. The little people should only buy shares when blood is in the streets. Since May 2012, the share prices have been much safer to buy.
