    SHORTs at an ALL TIME HIGH !

    Jim, the nicest thing I can call you is a self-motivated negative rumor monger.

    I'm still waiting for some short to come forward with some relevant negative fundamentals on why I should short this stock. No takers.

    The only reason given to short this thing is so day traders and shorts can make money. Not a motivation for me to sell.

    • A short is betting that IFNY's oil and gas operations are all smoke and mirrors. To date a short would be right, but that might not always be the case.

      A long is betting that IFNY is an honest to God oil and gas company. To date he would be wrong but that might not always be the case.

      The way I see it, IFNY has about a 50 50 chance of succeeding or failing. Longs believe that it's better than 50 50 even though IFNY has no tangible proof yet, and a short thinks its worse than 50 50.

      The jury is still out.

      • Nice summary Bshaef. One little quibble. As a long, I'd bet on Ifny at even less than 50/50 given the potential upside. Having said that, I do think it's better than 50/50 that IFNY is an oil and gas company.

      • the jury has some very compelling facts to consider. why would el presidente be on an aggressive talk show circuit if he had any indication that things are not going well, let alone bad. you know the legal backlash that would cause for him proffessionally and personally?
        it would not be worth it. if you believe he is a smart man, and he sure seems to be, then exhibit A on the evidence table speaks volumes for the jury's consideration.

        But Stan/Ron is guilty shortmindednegatosis.
