I think it might be somewhat common, hopefully I am wrong, among the big players to plant negative news about companies while at the same time buying up their stock at subdued prices. So I propose that anyone buying more than x% or y shares of stock in a single company should be made public. An entity could perhaps engage in a class action lawsuit with no lead plaintiff just to discredit a companies stock. What do you all think? Would this be going to far?
