    • Understand the way in which shorts operate , when they Buy stock they don't immediately close out their short position . Their net short position goes down considerably because they have boxed a certain % of their short. If underlying stock continues to move higher chances are at some point they will close out their short . But if momentum to upside does not follow through they are less motivated to close out short and can if they choose turn around in a very aggressive strategic manner sell long stock to maintain their short. I do believe shorts have played Procera currency in this technique. They have traded around their short position in a technique that serves their best interest. There even is a chance that strategically when Procera did not Pre-release / come clean around Stifel Conference that they created the perception of disappointment / institutional selling . The same way 3 days before Q3 earning release last Nov they blitzed PKT for 3 days creating a very real perception of a earning miss.

    • Wow!
