Looks like MSN is downgrading and upgrading company's.  Does MSN "Warranty" their advice and   opinions they publish for public consumptoion.???????   What right does MSN have to kick other companys, or,  advise dummy's what to buy?????????

 

Is it time some young attorney that wants to make a name for himself along with a few million files a class action suit against these so called anaylist and their parent company's.  Every once in a while you hear of some young attorney fileing a class action multi billion dollar suit and winning,  and making a name for himself.   Think!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Many yeears ago it seems like I remember some huge oil company interfering with a smaller oil company's planned venture,  and,  the smaller company sued the huge company and won many billions,  yes,  (billions as I recall).  I can't remember the details,  but,  is it time anaylist and their huge parent cmpany's that hire the amaylist keep their nose out of other comany;s business??????
