shorting 26 million shares of a 70 million share total should be illegal. you know that 2 extra million short this week was to hold this in check. if the SEC had any character they would police this BS. the complaints from wall street about over regulation is a joke. its like having one cop in a city of fifty million.
<< It shows their desperation. They are shorting everyday to keep the price depressed. We see that in the way TLB trades. To me it just means more fuel for the fire! >>
You seem to believe the shorts are idiots - irrationally shorting more and more until they get burned by a buyout. This is a very naive view.
While I don't understand why the short feel so bold, especially with Sycamore's stated interest in Talbot's, their boldness scares me. Shorts are not dumb - they obviously think this stock is going considerably lower.
