Thanks. Wondering whether they'll make a profit in Q4, or whether increases in their raw material costs, primarily sugar will keep them in the red. With the poor action leading up to the earnings, it's like "someone knew" they were going back in the red. So likely the stock action well ahead will again foretell Q4 earnings.
There is a HUGE short position on the stock. Approx 2.5% (1.5M shares) according to yahoo finance. When this stock finally does pop.... it's gonna pop fast as the shorts have to cover -- driving the price even higher.
Hate to rain on your analysis, but 2+% short interest is really a very modest % compared to a lot of stocks. E.G., NTRI has over 30% short, HL over 13%, AMR over 10%.
