ABAT Trading Halted

Filed under: Money,Stocks — site admin @ 7:49 pm

Trading has been halted on ABAT according to NASDAQ Trader.com for “more information requested”. I’m not sure where that leaves me and my 600 share position in ABAT. I’ve kept my teeth gritted through the ups and downs since April with the idea that I would “average down”. I’m sitting on about a 60% decline in the shares I own. I’m lucky and not so lucky with these shares. If ABAT never comes back to trade and becomes worthless I have no recover alternatives (unless previously threatened class action suits come to fruition) because the shares are in my IRA – meaning I have no taxable losses. Were these shares in a taxable account I would look to see them become worthless to offset other capital gains. The lucky part is that they are not yet considered worthless and since I can’t sell them I guess I’m stuck with them, for now.


Disclaimer: I do own shares of ABAT. I’m stuck in them. You couldn’t buy them right now if you wanted to.
