I frequently read where famous shorts such as James Chanos lament the way shorts are viewed by the general public. My observation has been that shorts are typically more prone to use foul language and nasty remarks and that has to contribute to public opinion. Here on this thread, we have a case in point. Poster shortdown's previous post didn't merit namecalling.
Not a genius - I just realize when a stock is overvalued. There was a reason why this stock traded below $5 a year ago (rational valuation of silver) and a reason why it is $17+ now (speculators convinced it will keep rising). SLW is going back to $10 as any correction in pricing will send all of these confident message board posters scrambling to secure their gains. Silver has no inherent value - it is only worth what the market says it is worth so when prices fall there is no confidence on which to base an investment unlike Cisco, Apple, etc. that have a clear valuation metric.
Dude, you on crack or on meth? If your eyes can focus for a minute, look at this chart of SLW and the S&P. You call SLW a "turkey?"
