$ZOM I would hate for a RS to happen, but I also know a RS can happen when a buyout is happening, to gain hedge fund exposure, and the ability to be able to RS can be required for a compliance extension. Also a RS is only bad if you don't manage it correctly. I've been through several, and always end up with more shares afterwards because I buy the panic and sell it when it goes up again. Even if it's a small gain. You don't lose your money when it happens. Just the price. It averages out. So sell when RS is announced then wait for reentry. Stocks can go up after RS happen.
