Right on billioncubicft, too many short term traders with no knowledge of mining. AUN is not stamping out steel  washers on a production line, every day is a new adventure in mining. There will be quarters with higher production and some with lower, even in the biggest of mines. On days like this the short term traders will dump, that's when to buy and sell it back to them when the quarterly results are higher, if you are so inclined. Moaning about insiders, PR faults, surprises etc. is just wasting everyones time.
