    LONG'S DREAM.....SHORT'S NIGHTMARE

    Longs know Capstone, for several quarters. has increased gross profit, margin and orders now near $150 million. They know this will continue to be strong in the June 10th report which is why they won't sell their shares to the shorts who are faking this drop in price. Even when shorts sell their own shares to themselves to make it look like there are real sellers down here, they still can't get longs to sell, why would they sell? This is a real shorts nightmare.

    For several months shorts have wanted to get out and have dropped their position by 40% but then they couldn't cover the rest because Capstone has been producing such significant improvements quarter after quarter, that investors stopped selling. Capstone is now only one penny a share away from profit. Plan A for shorts was to wait it out and gradually cover but now plan A is a proven failure. Smart shorts would have realized months ago that they needed to switch to Plan B.
    .
    PLAN B
    Admitting Plan A isn't working and complete the shut down and take the loss. Then continue the buying, bringing the CPST price above 1.50. From there short it down to 1.20/1.30 and establish a workable and profitable new trading range...1.20 to 1.50. That range will last until the Capstone fundamentals improve further.

    Smart shorts are always updating their strategy and not letting laziness screw them up. This bloated short position isn't going unnoticed. Some long hedge can easily pop this big short bubble and get a big short term profit as CPST gets closer to the 10K every day. Longs will hold and some will buy more and new buyers will take positions but the opportunity to buy in the 80's will end.

    • Good post, newglobalsources.
      You are correct, shorts are running out of options.
      Time to cover, shorty!

    • speak for yourself, the chart on the right don't look healthy.

    • I'm way too long this stock and would really like to see profitability but dreaming in this manner does almost no good. In reality those that shorted this stock still have several days (possibly (probably) weeks, months, or in the worst case scenario, years) to cover. I will feel sorry for them (and happy for us) when (if) profitability does arrive, but till then they are in the driver's seat. Just the way I see it.
