Sink or bail water? The falling knife conundrum from the company side

Yesterday, I wrote a quick story about how Veritas Pharma (VRT.C) had jumped 15% or so after a mild sell-off the week before. By the time I’d posted it, VRT had reversed that jump and slid another 10% or so. I considered changing the story to reflect the change, but the moves were on small volume and could have swung the other way again in a single trade, so it just seemed like the best thing to do was throw hands up and move on.
