If so why wouldn't they just buy now on the open market?
Maybe they are? Short or dump about a million shares and cause a panic. Take out all the stops and trading shares. They can do it and as I have mentioned in other posts; the shorts are covering the shares we are handing them.
It was a ploy orchestrated by the shorts, made no sense at all. Totally bizarre.
Temporary though, shorts will be back in the frying pain very soon
Sentiment: Strong Buy
