Ryan Yates contributed this article At the end, he states:
I am currently long but tend to trade more actively that most, so I may sell or even short temporarily at any time. I also may buy extra if I think this write-up seems to be persuasive to the market. This is an investment idea, not a trade recommendation. I have done this research to the best of my abilities, but there may be inaccuracies. Also, my opinions or ideas may change at any time as I receive more information from the market.
Sure looks like he hopes this story moves the stock so he can profit from it.
I didn't read the article as it's a pumper's forum, but from what you write I'd say that's an accurate assessment. He also has the right idea, 'short temporarily', that's exactly how you have to do it. Please explain that to Infn.
