    When All Else Fails.... Try Fear....

    All this talk about a short squeeze and how it needs to be upgraded.... I love it. Its BS... its also a sign that the pig can go no further.

    The short squeeze has been on since the low $20's, end of story.

    And show me an independent analyst that can possibly upgrade a retail operation with Q over Q declining same store sales that are getting worse and worse as a consistant trend.

    This thing has had it.

    • I could not agree more. Am I baffled by the rise in the price of RSH? Of course, but my short strategy has been to cover when the momentum is high, then re-short at a higher level, making a few short term gains along the way.
      Am I underwater on my short position as of now? Absolutely, but why would I panic, and cover now? The bad news will eventually come, even if it takes another quarter or two.
      The management did a good job of laying off people, and closing down some of the worst performing stores. But as you say, declining same store sales are probably the most important thing here. I heard some desperation type ads for the Shack over the weekend. Now tell me, why would I go to Radio Shack for a wireless phone? And sure, I will go there to purchase a high def T.V., even though BBY and Circuit City have better selection, prices and customer service...right.

      I am patient enough to hold out. I have even gone ahead and purchased some October puts on the cheap!
