Can I ask what is with EXPstocktrader's Seeking Alpha articles? Every time this guy says something good about AFFY, the price shoots up. The last time was May 7, 2013 with his article, "Affymax could be the best reversal play for 2013" - its stock price shot up then.
This time, you can clearly see that his article today "Affymax: huge speculative upside with near-term risks" which came out at around 2:20 pm EST was associated with the stock price going up from approximately 2:30 pm EST. He must be pretty influential!
BTW, I'm neither a short nor a long - I used to have AFFY stocks, but do not hold any now. Just wanting to share my objective observation with you guys and perhaps hear your comments.
The buyers come when an article makes sense, today's volume is 4 times the daily average, and the stock has low risk to the down side, the shorts have sold it down for months & it held and is now rising from an over sold bottom, there will be big money to be made here at the shorters expense. 18 days to cover short positions is great, she should run up for days.
