That's the saddest admission from a short I've read today. At least this imbecile had enough common sense to cover in after-hours before VMW runs up further tomorrow following some nice placed upgrades from these ANAL-ysts. Because after just finishing reading some of these preliminary comments from those Bozos I wouldn't be at all surprised if some of these guys upgrade the stock tomorrow morning as well as raise their target price.
Sorry, maybe a bit of a clarification is in order on my part. What I should have said was that he/it is an "imbecile" for shorting VMW in the first place, because from my read the dumb-dumb basically shorted the stock thinking its pps was too pricey without understanding the company's underlying fundamentals or even articulate the reasons why he thought the stock was overvalued in the first place other then constantly regurgitating the same old tired diatribes--"the P/E is too high, the P/E is too HIGH!" Please-e-e-e... Because that friend makes him an "imbecile" in my book.
