what the hell are you talking about? I guess you wanna cover your short at $12. Unfortunately, that's not gonna happen. In fact, institutions added their positions during Q3 and Q4 in 2012. Go to CNBC website and find out yourself. Can't wait to see you get burnt! LOL.
As I told, I am glad I sold over 610,000 shares at 18.5-18.6 avg and made tons on long. I am not short on HPQ but I seriously worried about survival of HPQ for many months and I still think, it has much more downside risk and those who would like capital preservation, would think twice before investing in HPQ at prices 18 and above.
There are more skeletons to fall at HPQ IMHO.
