JWR1945a:

Therefore, the market should have priced these shares at zero already, and the fact that some imbicile is buying them at a non-zero price indicates that the market is not efficient.

The IMBICILE may be a full service broker allowing his clients to unload shares and recognize a loss for tax reasons.

Have fun.

Worthless shares could be written off regardless. ?The IRS would be hard pressed to prove otherwise.
