    Short Interest

    turbo said "Short interest is at an all time high. Probably higher now with the stock continuing to go up for no reason. I know I added to my short today."

    turbo, you asked me about shorting this stock and my reply was even republic is going to make money this summer. in the long term, i don't see where republic fits in, but in the short term shorting is a gutsy call. i don't see how they can win in mke and i see them losing business they have with the majors over time as they are not competitors.

      Yes, i have significant paper losses on this right now with my average short price at 6.50, but I still like the short for the long term as frontier can't compete with the majors on their branded ops. I realize Frontier will make money this year and have realized this all along. I thought the market had priced this in but apparently this stock has picked up some momentum investors. LUV will continue to hammer them in MKE IMHO.
