Remarks:1) Now is there a correlation with events, or is it wishful thinking?2) Would be nice if the recent downward trend were really an intelligent reassessment of the situation, and not just a momentary dent.

The presentation, however, looks awful. The fonts are ugly and poorly scaled. The linedraw is terrible. There are no gridlines so it's hard to read values near the middle. Did I mention the fonts? It looks straight out of the 80s. Ploticus is good for generating simple realtime plots but its output is definitely not print quality.
I can recommend Gnumeric -- it's an amazingly capable spreadsheet with good plotting. You could also use GnuPlot to generate PostScript (then render with GhostScript and mark up with Dia).

I kind like the RHAT vs SCOX 1 year comparison, too.

Also note that since January, SCO's own statements seem to have led to the stock price falling, while actions that restrict SCO's freedom of action, like BayStar getting the ability to muzzle SCO's lawyers, has made the price rise. Last year, SCO's statements seemed to lead to price rises no matter how ridiculous they were, or how comprehensively they were rebuffed: e.g. the price surge at the quickly crushed SCOsource code showing.
At the risk of stating the bleeding obvious, somehow I think this indicates that investors aren't as confident in SCO as they used to be, and perhaps are even starting to think for themselves for a change.
But no. That will surely never happen. :)

So taking this analogy one step further, it looks like SCO has been shot from a cannon. Darl and the boys seem to be enjoying the ride with the wind in their faces, but when they land there's going to be a big BOOM and a crater.
