gone tomorrow

This morning’s Wall Street Journal has a short item about Digital Domain Media Holdings, known for its hologram of Tupac Shakur.  Here is its ten-month history as a stock.

The front page of the same section has an article about insiders being given early outs for supposedly restricted IPO shares.  A recent posting showed other, more high-profile examples of this “here today, gone tomorrow” nature of today’s environment.  It is within this context that the rules on offerings have been loosened.

Which of the investments that will be offered to you will turn out to have been mere holograms?  (Chart:  Bloomberg terminal.)
