    Good Weekend All

    Well, we can't really ask for more than that. A very detailed report from a very reputable firm. Hopefully a few folks read it and add a little weight to the long side of this equation.


    Shorts--congrats on a very good trade. I do however think you might be over-staying your welcome a tad.

    • Problem is they can't cover 9 million shares and keep it a very good trade even in a market down 1000 points from the high. And there in lies the rub of shorting such a huge percentage of the float in a company with plenty of cash, an anchor investor like kRJ Kirk, a large mutual fund investor like Fidelity and a new hedge fund investor like the Baker brothers with a stellar bio investing track record with a history of not just adding once when they add a new position.

      As someone posted re a 9 million short position "You can check out any time you want, but you can never leave"
