    1.5 mil professionally managed new shorts on VVUS

    Not my "baby", just one of many of my holdings. I can wait 5 years on this one, so it doesn't worry me in the least. You are absolutely correct. They can wreck any company, and they do wreck many. However, a 10% increase in shares short during an overall market downturn is no big deal, especially when sales are growing and more drugs are pending coming on the market imminently. The downdraft in this particular stock was almost solely caused by short selling and not at all by people leaving the stock, which means it has quite a bit of upside potential and pent-up demand. Onward and upward. It can be this month, this year, or 5 years from now, I really don't care when, but it will go up steadily for a long long time. That is inevitable.
