Occasionally you will run across a smart one. Because really the truely smart ones due even more DD than longs. Because not only do they need to be correct about direction, but also a timeframe basically.
But I haven't seen any smart ones here.
A general basher/CREE hater with multiple personalites and ID's who tries to post anything negative about the stock, but I doubt he's actually short. Just simply hates the company and hasn't added any value yet and now I have most of the ID's on ignore but I'd be willing to bet he's not saying anything new.
Shorts are just "future owners" and I've sold to them many times some of my CREE. Infact I'm almost out of common now.
