As an investor, as the President of a Public Company, as the President of a Private Company, as a small businessman for more than 30 years, as a believer in fair and equally competitive market, it is crucial that this market operate without undue manipulation and influence.
Outside manipulation of any stock to benefit a select few is counter to the entire concept of a fair and equitable exchange. Any exchange. Without the confidence of its investors, any exchange is doomed to failure.
I am a strong proponent of the rule change. I urge you to do whatever you can to see to it that this change is implemented as quickly and efficiently as possible.
