    Why do shorts keep shorting?

     

    I think they're trying to make a living at trading so their perspective is limited to the the direction the wind blows each day. They don't see the value of holding for a length of time. However, they're providing shares for longs so let them short all they want.

    • I don't know if you've noticed, but the entire stock market is down about 10% since the year started.

      It's longs who have been swimming against the tide lately, not shorts.

      Go with the flow.

      • Mothy, I am quite aware of the current market situation. The last REALLY good take day on street for me was 10/18/07 when my brokerage accts. cumulative returns totaled 55%. ASTI (IMO) just seems much too volatile to short (this is not OPBL) and with instituions involved, no one can predict which way the will blow.

        Posting on mssge boards can be great for info sharing but it won't affect share price one bit. Short your shares in private and leave the board open to those who really have something to say. Best of luck to you regardless.

    • Agree, the onslaught of good news is unbelievable. If it drops below 15, I'll load up but I don't expect that to happen. Have been in this situation before, rode Cphd from 3 to 32.
