When you know EMC is constantly buying shares why would you short this stock? I short stocks often but pick stocks that have a good chance of losing half of there value. Apple is one I have short for the past month. I probably will cover before the election as a Romney win will spike the market.
quite the contrary. a romney win implies QE3 will come to an end sooner than expected and the fed printing machine will stop working. but fortunately, romney will not win and market can run up a bit further from here.
