    why short ratio at 80% of float

    this is scary - all the shorts can not be wrong - plus put premiums are very high (highest i have ever seen) - there must be something bad that we do not know about

    • I'm guessing new subscribers for TZOO for this quarter pretty much came to a halt, there are just hundreds of new daily deals competition in the last 6 months and I can't imagine TZOO grew a whole lot. I think Travelzoo totally underestimated the competion in this sector.
      That being said, they still have a niche wihtin this niche, which is higher quality deals targeted at a higher class than Groupon/Google type deals.

    • maybe they are short from $80-100 and haven't covered yet????

      maybe they are long other stocks that they are hedging with a short against tzoo

      maybe they are wrong

      there are a ton of reasons

      that is why there is a stock market

      are you saying that all the mutual funds holding shares in TZOO don't know what they are doing either?

      look at how many people shorted netflix and how that worked enabled netflix to climb to 300
