Nakate, I have a lot of respect for your posts, but in one respect I see things fundamentally differently. You see the market strictly in "buy and hold" terms. Your suggestion is that anyone who has a different strategy is not "supporting the company". I don't see it as the obligation of the shareholders to support the company. I see it as the duty of the company to provide a good return on investment to the shareholders. And that doesn't mean being fixated on the share price to the exclusion of the fundamentals. And a shareholder who takes a profit is not betraying the company.
There is also nothing that does or should prevent someone who feels that a company is not being fundamentally well-run, or someone who just wants to bet against a company's success, from engaging in a transaction that predicts a lower share price, and that benefits if that call is correct. Thus shorting is legal. Some would say that this is little more than gambling, but gambling too is legal. But shorting is not and should not be a self-fulfilling prophesy. You will remember that this was the accusation leveled against Muddy Waters regarding Sino-Forest. Merely by releasing their research paper, it was alleged, they caused the share price to fall, which resulted in the profits that accrued to them because they had shorted the stock.
As for stealing, no one ever forces anyone to sell. If people sell just because someone else is selling (ie, because prices are falling) and have never done the DD to allow them to form a reasoned evaluation of whether the market is placing the appropriate value on the stock, that is sad, and for novice investors, it is a crying shame.... but it certainly is not stealing.
Having said all of that, I'd love to go back to the market you dream of... but it ain't gonna happen.
So, everyone, listen to Nakate. Don't allow your shares to be "stolen". Sell when the stock reaches the value that you feel is appropriate, and don't get carried along with the stream, and don't succumb to fear because of what other people are or seem to be doing. Keep your investment horizon realistic for your situation, and if you have a shorter timeline, don't invest in stocks that haven't yet proven themselves. Because chances are you'll buy when everyone is talking about the company, and the share price is shooting up, and you'll get in just in time to see it all fall away. For stocks like ORT, as you see here every day, buy on pullbacks and be patient.
