    A shorts tale

    Total Morons, Inc. ... or why YOU should get ready to BUY right here
    ITS called a short cover squeeze. It happens when the shorts are attempting to cover... usually kicked off by one large position... forcing all other shorts to immediately cover. The price of the stock rises as the shorts scramble for loose and free shares to buy in order to cover their position. Shorts are all pigs... and greedy... so none of them want to lose a single penny. As the prices rise from short covering as in a stock with such a high percentage as this... the shorts all attempt to cover at one time. Stocks like this may drag on the bottom of the charts for months or years before going up. In the meantime... days and weeks and months drag by, with the shorts holding off on covering... while giving up easy money shorting elsewhere on the market... all because they are comfortable here. SEE USU... Usec... ticker USU... which closed today around $26.80... up from $3 dollars and change a few days ago... all on short covering. And that company's balance sheet makes this company's balance sheet look like Microsoft. LOL
