    100% surely insiders have leaked horrible news to short sellers given $10+ to $2.98 drop here

    100% surely insiders have leaked horrible news to short sellers given $10+ to $2.98 drop here. Short sellers have to be so brave based on "very solid reliable" information to short a company like this and dump daily not even covering when stock is down 70% imho.

    • If you are aware of some real-time short interest interface, place share with the rest of us because I think that would be a useful tool. However, given that there is no such thing, you have nothing to go by except short interest reports that are always atleast 2 weeks late. That being said, what is driving the price down is most likely people selling on fear but not necessarily shorting. The reason retail investors tend to lose, is that they doubt their own intelligence/dilligence and follow big funds or even other retail investors. What they fail to realize is that, funds dump shares of companies for MANY superficial reasons that have nothing to do with their analysis of the company. If you can read, you should read a book called "Value Investing: From Graham to Buffet." which is a collection of letters, essays, and chapters written by a bunch of really really smart people who have made billions of dollars. In it, there is a chapter which describes the long list of reasons why institutions sell even when they think the price may go up. One reason that certainly applies to VELT case is that many institutions cannot own shares that trade below $5. When they own shares of a company and those shares go below 5$ for a while they have to sell them, even if they are expecting a rebound. The point of the chapter is that, although retail investors are at a disadvantage because they can't move the market like funds, they can capitalize when institutions make moves for superficial reasons.

      If you believe that the people betting against this stock are smarter than you, then you should bet against it too.

      Heres a question though: How many times has running to catch the train actually resulted in you catching the train? My guess is never. Perhaps VELT is doomed and will go bankrupt, but if not, then the time to buy is right now. So ask yourself: Do you think VELT is going bankrupt?
