There is nothing in what SB communicated on the phone or email that would be considered insider info. Everything is going as planned is NOT special knowledge since it was said on the condition call.
yes you shorted at $18 like a fool and now will have to pay $26 to cover. so you lost $8 a share. now how many did you short?
as a finance MBA, this is an interesting test of the efficient market theory. clearly the market is NOT strong form efficient as regards this stock. you could have gotten in months ahead on the same info. even weak for efficiency is being tested with this one. Technical analysis and old fashioned research are paying off big. Even now it is clear this stock should be trading at at least $60 based on comparable cos but it is still at $25. Reminds me of the old line about an economist who sees a $100 bill on the ground but refuses to pick it up, saying if it were real, it would have already been picked up by someone. WE make the market, and by publicizing this stock we make it efficient. and the market can only adapt its expectations so fast, which is why we have had up day after up day
clearly it is woefully undervalued. should be trading at $500m market cap, buyout on positive p2 would be $2-3 billliion
