Shorts (boardwalk97?) will have to BUY these shares back, hopefully at much HIGHER prices after Q1 EPS (unless they know something non-public that will tank our stock due to their "direct communication with our company's management").
I wonder if boardwalk97 and/or his company are CURRENTLY short EZCH, or if he/they have recently covered since 3/31 (maybe creating our recent rise)???
Maybe boardwalk97 will come clean and tell us ALL of the truth in FULL, about his (AND his company's) EZCH trading activities......
LOL at that concept.
All IMHO. Good luck to all HONEST investors who are currently LONG our EZCH stock.
Here is the latest EZCH short interest data as of 2/15:
Again, we are at another new all-time high number of shares short. Almost a full one-million shares now.
This might be due to boardwalk97 and/or his company's shorting EZCH stock, since he hasn't specifically denied it when asked directly.
That might explain why he (and his alias gang) gets so angry at me, for bringing attention to this data and those who are possibly behind it.
Afterall it IS just "data", which can be looked at as bullish OR bearish by each investor (it is in the eye of the beholder).
BEARISH: Shorts believe they are smarter or better informed than others (or can manipulate the price enough).
BULLISH: Shorts have already sold, and eventually they have to buy/cover, which will only add even more fuel to the fire of any move up ahead.
Now all we need is Eli/EZCH to formally announce "Cisco is officially in volume production", and the shorts will get burned badly!
All IMHO. Good luck to all HONEST longs.
Praying for the liars and deceivers on this board to get their shorts burned off.....
Short interest data is nothing more than data. How each investor views that data, is up to him/her.
My post even reviewed BOTH possibile views for each investor to consider for themselves.
I post to inform other honest investors looking to collaborate objectively and politely.
YOU post here only to persuade and manipulate readers for your own personal profit. That is why you fight any info you can't control.
It is clear to me (by yet another of your emotional outbursts) that YOU think our short interest IS a big deal, and that my sharing it threatens your current trading position.
Sorry you choose to view it as a negative thing to discuss openly among honest investors. You must be one of the shorts again.
Your negativity about the on-topic facts "getting out" is noted.
Your continued avoidance of the other on-topic questions, just reveal and document your continued deceptions on this board....
All IMHO. Good luck to all honest investors and objective contributors to this EZCH forum.
The number of EZCH shares short was at an annual high (and i believe, all-time high), as of January 30th:
Depending on how one chooses to look at the data...
- either the shorts are well-positioned (as of 1/30)
- the shorts can get easily squeezed (in numbers) if we rally again
I guess time will see which view is correct, but more money is at stake - which IMHO makes this number more significant than most times in our history.
Good luck to all honest contributors to this forum.
Interestingly, our short interest went UP a bit between 10/15 and 10/31 - before our Q3 report on 11/6.....
I thought for sure it would have continued to go DOWN before the conference call, to avoid any further potential squeeze on any good words by management. Interesting.
Good luck to all honest investors.
Nice to see in the last 3 months short interest has gone down 40%? looks optimistic. Although there's not much relevance to having to cover 3 days worth of stock the covering could be a positive indicator vs being seen as negative.
Our short interest was cut in HALF, between 10/1 - 10/15:
Frankly, I'm surprised there was still a quarter of a million shares short (at 10/15), where $5+ wasn't "low enough" to cover.......
Good luck to all honest longs.
"$5+ wasn't 'low enough' to cover"
Reminds me of a series of posts between you and another honest poster here wherein you both felt we may retest the lows.
McW's post today would seem to support the dialogue between the two of you.
Did you listen to the conference call yesterday? I think I have seen you over there.
Have a good weekend--I'll be working.
FYI.... not much change, as it is from BEFORE our recent collapse below $10.....
I can't imagine too many shorts will show up as still un-covered at our next report (as of tomorrow 10/15), unless they thought $5 wasn't low enough.
Good luck to all honest longs.
EZCH short interest didn't change much.......
Settlement Date Short Interest Percent Change Average Daily Share Volume Days to Cover
08/29/2008 545,277 (3.00) 56,402 9.67
08/15/2008 562,170 9.50 83,224 6.75
Eye of the beholder
I thought about my answer to your question; specifically, whether it even required a response after MBM interjected.
I decided I would answer it, even if for no other reason than if you are compensated to post here, I have benefited from the contrarian benefit over the past 8 years.
The answer to your question is that you hope for $10 when your average in is in the mid-single digits. That is the case for a number of the old-timers here. For some it has been because of a buy and hold strategy from early on, or trading around a core position, or, as in my case, a combination of both. And for the very reasons that MBM proposed on this thread.
As to your new tool, you are way ahead of me. I'm still trying to figure out my bluetooth headset!
My average in was better than yours today, and I am (I think) usually more aggressive than you. But that was only because I had dipped in slightly at $14 and had set a low target for more shares. In the end, we're probably tied. Either way, my opinion, we are both going to make money, along with the others that have been buying this recent dip. Hope so.
