The Impact of Lehman Brothers Bankruptcy

You need to watch this video (copy/paste the link into your browser):

It is a segment of Jim Cramer's show with Linn Energy CEO. It explains how a good company with strong earnings can have its stock go down through forced selling.

I've written several times on this blog about how the forced selling is artificially pushing down stock prices. This video goes a long way to explain how the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy has impacted the stock price of Linn Energy. You will also be able to understand how the forced selling by hedge funds liquidating positions has had a similar impact.
