These pigs beggin for 19 will soon bacon on our table. Stockconsultant.com has it as a very strong buy, and they are pretty consistent. You would have to be mentally deficient to continue shorting this stock at these levels, it will never see 19 like our desperate little friend is beggin for. No enough shorts for a squeeze just a few of the stupid ones, but their money spends the same as anyone else's.
Yea, there are lots of other much better shorts out there, try WEBM, etc. SIVB has great fundamentals without the warrant income. Core earnings improvement was great.
This thing about the CFO leaving is odd, you just don't find people who are in that high profile/pressure type of job who in their early 30's walks out to "spend more time with the family". He has made alot of money, but these type people don't quit. The family focus plays well and is great in theory, but something is askew. Usually when I see this type of answer it means the guy didn't feel he was cutting it or management told him he wasn't cutting it.
