Not all shorts are idiots, but the ones that plaster the board with dumb comments and ridiculous claims certainly are obnoxious. I am short AZO and for good reason. Negative equity value, huge debt, insider selling. And that's just the beginning. I have yet to hear one long try to explain how AZO is worth remotely near the $8 billion market cap. I bet I get another "get in the zone" or "i wonder how many people on this board use synthetic motor oil?" These are derivative arguments. AZO doesn't have a monopoly, and in fact, they face more competition than ever as AAP and ORLY grow rapidly. Not to mention Wal-Mart, Target, and others also sell automotive supplies, and for less.
I want one solid fact why this stock is a buy today.
