Well, you might be right. A ploy to dive the price before it blasts off. Unfortunately, I happened to catch a change in the Equity Summary Score as reflected at Fidelity. Yesterday the score was 8.0 for Bullish, but now it's just 6.0 for Neutral. I don't understand that change, frankly, and that's what prompted me to sell my position, which I'm already suspecting I might regret.
I'll be watching, though, looking for the chance to get back in.
I sold yesterday at $29.22, no volume, no conviction by institutions in buying up these shares. No way in hell this goes over $30 near term at least. I well wait for it to roll back under $27 before buying again.
What makes you think a stock with strong revenue & earnings growth is being controlled by shorts? Wake up. This stock is being controlled by big institutions taking a position or adding to a position. They don't allow the price to be run up and then buy like retail investors. They bring the price down using a variety of tactics and then buy until they have filled the coffers.
