Sun Micro shareholders approve 1-for-4 reverse stock split

JAVA said Thursday that it's shareholders approved a 1-for-4 reverse stock split that will take effect Nov. 12.
Sun will exchange one new share of the company's stock for every four shares that its shareholders currently own.
A Sun spokeswoman said the move will not impact the market value of Sun as a whole,
but that the share price may move up or down after the reverse split takes effect. (Duh!!)
