Less than a week later PPTV stock reverse split 1:4 and the stock jumped not to $2.56, but $2.70! Ameritrade charged the unfortunate owner of these (now 25) shares of stock $20.00 in an "involuntary reorginazation fee".
(Aside: The reverse split was because NASDAQ requirements are that the stock maintains $1.00 per share. If it falls under it has so long to close at $1.00 or higher for 10 days running before NASDAQ drops the stock)
The next day the stock closed at $2.05; losing almost 25% of its value.
The next next day (today) the stock closed at $0.70... a 66% loss of value.
Since I bought the stock two weeks ago it has lost 71.77% of its value and cost me $20 in maintenance fees.
::sigh:: The first few days I finished up; and now I'm down 10% of my investments overall.
