What on Earth Has Happened to A123? (AONE)

Sorry about the disappearing act, reality intruded in the form of BIDU's $80 drop and subsequent $30 rebound.
I just happened to take a glance at A123, the stock had an $18 handle!

As I said the day the stock started trading:
...I don't have an interest in IPO's in general (all the allocation shenanigans, quid pro quo, etc.) but would be remiss if I didn't at least mention this one...
The only things I know for sure are the stock is 25% cheaper than it was four days ago (below the first day close!) and earnings (loss) are due on Nov. 10.
