A Firing Offense
Overstock.com CEO/conspiracy theorist/short-and-analyst suer/journalist-taunter/Worst CEO-wannabe and stalking aficionado Patrick Byrne told Donny Deutsch on CNBC last night that it is a firing offense at his fast-sinking company to mention the stock price.
Gee, I wonder why that is? Can anyone take a guess?
Byrne seemed subdued and pro forma in his tired recitation of "stock market IOU" and "the sky is falling" nonsense. I wonder if even he believes any of that garbage anymore.
