    The Greed of 170 Calls

    Unbelievable what these manipulators will do. Amazing how it gets up to 170 with ease.
    These guys KNOW this is not worth it, but do it anyways. Using other peoples money to fulfill their stock options. When is the SEC going to get around to stopping these guys from doing this?
    Happens so many times, and they are ALL in on it. Short the heck out of this thing. Not worth anything.

    • Yep, never seen the like since 2000. Down 30% in a week short and bleeding out of both ears. Easy fed money and a total lack of performance elsewhere in tech lets this group meet poor targets and the analysts pump it on fluff and 400% required growth rates. Model here won't fly and accounting distorted due to stock options but who cares easy money right?? Interesting that Goldman and MS pretty quiet as is financial press. Someone will yell fire soon (I hope...). Not pretty.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell
