Yesterday the stock of the bankrupt Crumbs Bakeshop (CRMBQ) went up over 100%. This is likely because foolish people who don’t understand bankruptcy heard the news about the purchase and think current shareholders will benefit. They will not.

See also the Wall Street Journal article on this from yesterday (excerpted below):
The investor group’s no-cash offer leaves unsecured creditors in the Chapter 11 case with few options for recovery. An attorney for the unsecured creditors said in court filings on Monday that a creditor committee could pursue lawsuits against as-yet-unnamed parties to earn money for the group.
Mr. Sirota said after the hearing that the company will liquidate its remaining holdings but that the bulk of the work is done with the conclusion of the sale.
