Some posts today on SHU from people who say they heard from management points to a really positive change and more confidence on XOM's behavior since the exclusive rights went away. If true and it starts to trickle into the market, stock will be back at 90 in no time and maybe 200 on announcement. Looks like deal might be nearing.
We can't talk about body language or tone, but the short/ bashers/ news outlet/ Duma etc etc etc can say the R James target is $65 when it is actually $100, Leave out critically important words on every possible news article or just plain lie. Why don't you just follow your own advice.
ps...when did you go short
