That is an unreasonable way to interpret what happens to the price of a stock.  Your interpretation is possible, but it is more likely that investors were happy with ANY settlement, so long as it did not destroy the company.  Stockholders like certainty.

Given that Diebold's stock rose after they settled, doesn't it seem like this settlement let them evade a worse resolution?
