that feel or convinced of real bad earnings causing the stock to go much much lower, wouldn't it make since for them to be talking up the stock right now along with the longs in order to make shorting it a better value after earnings are announced?
Bad earnings are already factored in to the currently stock price. But,, Yes you're right,, the bears should be talking it up... unless they think earnings will be great...hmmm.
> wouldn't it make since for them to be talking up the stock right nowNothing anyone says here will change the price of the stock. Also, why be greedy? If it's going below $15 on Thursday, it doesn't much matter if you get in at $17.50 or $18.
