Mastro, I guess that could happen (trading halted without opportunity to cover)but it's not been my experience albeit minimal. I've only been short two stocks that went Chapter 11, Boston Market and most recently Gadzooks and didn't have a problem covering. Started shorting both of those when they looked to be at the bubble and just stayed short as they began moving in the right direction all the way to Chapter 11.
I'm not an employee nor disgruntled but have been watching FMXI for quite a while and agree with you that it's a shame what MC did to this company. I disagree with you that it's doomed to failure but acknowledge that it's risky.
The debt is not only high but at high rates but given the positive operating earnings they have a chance.
I think current management is moving in the right direction and I've never seen a post from you that has not criticized the recent moves. Thanks for your response.
