A high short interest ratio coupled witha strong corp fundamental will equal a squeeze that could launch THQ-I. Agree with the statement that you would have to be a idiot to short this stock BUT if we are right we will be thanking those shortees.
<<< Why someone would want to be short this company is beyond my limits of comprehension.<<<<
Try Ginko or ALC.
Longs usually don't understand shorts and vice versa. Makes the market interesting.
Companies which acquire other companies usually experience a decline in price in the short term. Not always but more often than not. Then there is the question of the dress. A pretty good reason to be short anything rather than long this coming week.
Personally I see this stock going up pretty soon. But it sure isn't a gimme IMO.
