let me start with saying I am short on this position and I am not much in loss as I just initiated position today, and I am well prepared to short it till 8.50. However I just don't understand this stock.
P/E - this year they are in loss, and next year 64. P/Book - 300+
I have seen people being called almost crazy when they are buying stocks P/E - 20+, and P/book - 3. But this is beyond the limits I can ever imagine.
I can understand if it is next Apple or pharma with drug in pipeline, but don't understand for this company. Even housing market going up, we know we are in very slow recovery for next 5 yrs. Plus lot of people think we are close to new mild recession than booming recovery.
Why HW is so priced? I would love to know what is Fundamental and Technical analysis behind current price $7 and $8.50 price target set by a few analyst?
Here's hoping you experience heavy losses with your short position.
I used to short stocks at 52 week highs as well thinking they were overpriced. I learned its a horrible way to trade as there are underlying reasons why stocks are performing so well and you wind up running uphill with your trade right from the very start.
