You are truly an $..diot. Who wants to hang around Netflix for 5 or 10 years? Heck i sold half of my position to lock so profits.
Lesson # 2: learn to ride the wave, may it be long or short. Currently the wave is long. Bag all you can and again, stop screwing around with financial statements. Market is bullish on Netflix. It can care less, at least until the next earnings. You too can thank me once you end your current pain of shorting.
I am surprised that no one has mentioned that the margin requirements for NFLX were raised from the standard 30% to 50% sometime late Thursday. Not only were shorts toasted because of the price increase, but if they had any shorts on margin, they got a double whammy. Did anyone else notice that?
