I've watched the tape closely in the this stock and I don't see a lot of active shorting. what i do see is the absence of any buyers of substance whatsoever. the volume is miniscule and so a few thousand shares can push this thing a pt or more. gravity, too, is exerting itself--as the dow goes so goes GEO.
I think there may also be some concern that the hurricane caused costly disruptions. that plus the closing in michigan has buyers spooked.
what will change all this? a solid quarterly report and strong guidance. until then, i think this stock drifts with a downward bias.
