    42% of float is SHORT???

    That's what Yahoo says. That is A LOT of short interest. Maybe that has something to do with why it is going down!
    Well either they are a lot smarter than me (or a lot less smart). I would not short this because I think you have to pay the dividend if you are short on a stock and they might have to pay a regular dividend and a special dividend and when people start trying to cover it might get messy.
    If people are looking to buy 42% of the shares I don't think they will even be able to buy them... I hope they know what they are doing otherwise the possible short squeez might be a good thing for us regular folk!
    Maybe I'm wrong because I do not short stocks.
