I bet those day traders made out like bandits.

And probably the ones who sent the tweet.

It frightens me that our whole economy can be influenced by a tweet, or any world news at all.

Shouldn't these prices be based on you know... things like how well the company is doing.

It should be noted that every communications medium we ever invent eventually becomes dominated by people who are indistinguishable from catty highschool girls.

Same here. If they could mention the Spirit Airlines $50k thing, why not Gottfried?

More like expectations on how the company will do in the future, which a major terrorist attack could easily affect. Airlines didn't have their best years right after 9/11, for example.

While I haven't looked for a screencap of the purported tweet, the one I heard read 'on air' today stated Barack Obama.  Even on Twitter, one would suspect that serious announcements would use 'President' somewhere in there...

Ever since deregulation airlines have relied on a constant cycle of bankruptcy to eliminate debt and force unions to give up benefits to lower expenses so they can compete on unsustainable low ticket prices. All 9/11 did was accelerate the next cycle. One is forced into bankruptcy and they emerge able to price tickets cheaper, and that forces everyone else to likewise jettison debt and pension obligations.

I never fully understood the market crash after the 9/11 attacks. How do people look at an event like that and think "OMFG! Sell everything!!" ?

Anywho...I bought like crazy in that period, so whatever you panicky loons. If you want to do that again, I'll buy more again.
