VeriSign shares plummeted more than 45 percent after the company announced worse than
expected first-quarter results and lowered its guidance for the second quarter. The
company recorded a net loss of $328 million for the first quarter. VeriSign chairman,
president and CEO Stratton Sclavos said the company will initiate a "proactive
restructuring" that will result in a 10 percent workforce reduction.

Let's see. Customers are discovering that VeriSign's security certification is a buncha baloney - a lot of money for what amounts to displaying an image on a website with a link to a web page with a little bit of whois-type information - and nothing else.
And website owners are leaving Network Solutions in droves as they discover 1) owning a domain is no guarantee that it won't be sold out from under you even though all the fees are paid up and 2) even though NS says vital information, such as domain server information, absolutely cannot be changed without express authorization from the domain owner or the administrator, it somehow gets changed anyway.
VeriSign managed to muck up its cash cow (the registrar business). It's probably mucking up the other businesses it's gobbling as well. I'm glad I don't own shares in this company.

Given the spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant, if my employer requires me to return to the company's location in 2021, I will...
Agree because I'm fully vaccinated.
Agree if the company institutes a mandatory mask requirement and other safety protocols.
Comply reluctantly, because I can't afford to lose my job, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
