You do not want to short a stock with 37% of the float short with this kind of momentum....
in a roaring bull market with free money flowing from the fed. You're betting against a company that the press follows and adores and the masses are just learning about when sideline money is just beginning to invest. PLEASE DO NOT SHORT TESLA. You will be burned badly during the coming year. So many new shorts have been pulled in during the last few weeks. Just ask them how easy it is to short TSLA. This is going to break 300 very soon and maybe 400 by the end of 2015 or 2016.
No, you don't get it. 63% of the float is long and with the stock up the way this turd has, it is now time to game the bulls. And the timing couldn't have been more perfect. The market as a whole is ready to take another fast plunge back to the lows and it will hit tsla like a clubbed baby seal. The correlation between tsla and the market lately is near perfect with 3x beta. A 10% market correction will see tsla under $200 in no time.
Fooktard ...there are other ways for a stock to fall than being sold short. It's when the big holders dump it because of it's unsustainable parabolic rise to nosebleed territory based on what might happen 15 years from now.
