Not sure if I'm missing something, but what's with the sudden drop in the share prices lately? There really that much doubt in BFL delivering, or are shares being dumped for liquidity purposes? I'm looking at it as a good opportunity to buy honestly, but maybe I'm missing something...
Yes, you're not fully aware of some of the deals going on. There is some amount of transparency though, because at least part of it is happening here on the bitcointalk forums:

I'd be willing to sell put options on NASTY shares at the IPO price if you were interested in taking a short position.
I was confused by this.
I am proud to announce that we've added [GLBSE] NASTY to BLUECHIP at position 4 in the depth chart.
Thank you for adding NASTY to BLUECHIP. Lots of great things on the way.
Nearly asked what was going on with that, but opted not to:
I know far more about how bitcoin works than how stocks and securities and the trading customs. Everything on the "trading of shares" side seems pretty standard though from what I can tell.
Really meant a lot when you explained a few things to me on IRC in realtime chat. WAY too many threads for me to watch everything that is happening and take it all in. IRC chat with one or two people at a time is more my speed. You should really hang out more in OTC and make some person to person trades and get your rating up a bit more. Feels weird that I'm one of the few people who gave you a rating so far.
All in all I have a lot of trust in the various deals going on, and also, there is diversification going on with the mining hardware itself, etc...
Overall I'm happy with what I'm seeing.
