Sometimes the level of stupidity is simply astounding yet hilarious.
"The headline's about markups and was tweeted right around the open, but I wouldn't put a lot of faith in something like that since markups and discounts typically vary from customer to customer, based on volumes and other factors.
If I were Avigilon, I would contect the OSC [Ontario Securities Commission] about that too and start an internal investigation to try and find out who might be leaking this type of information.
IPVM might be state-side, but the OSC has the power to engage the RCMP and FBI as part of their investigations if needed. Having those folks raid you might be enough to knock a little sense into you"
So an IPVM article that ranked Avigilon as being more profitable for dealers than Axis and Hikvision is the scapegoat for the morning's stock price fall. Of course, he admitted, he had not read the article.
I repeat: Fool's Bet: Amateur Stock Investing
