To be fair, the "idiot" longs are the ones that made great money here. Only a few shorts have been lucky enough to be profitable. Most longs here got in under $100, so can hardly be called idiots. There may be a pullback here, but even so they will have very nice profits. Most shorts didn't think the stock would go through $100, myself included. Nothing wrong with playing either side of the market IMO, but let's be fair and honest about it.
Agreed, but same can be said for most successful stocks. The most used and decent comparison Apple had plenty of amazing shorting and buying opportunities. The price is what matters as the odds of success change based on that fact alone.
