You are crazy dude...there are MANY, MANY stocks out there to short 99% of all stocks are worth less than $0. While I don't claim to know what Intuit is truly worth, all I know is the "public" likes to buy stocks, and when they buy stocks, they like to buy stocks that have monopolies. I know of know company on the face of the earth that has more of a monopoly than Intuit. Look, I agree shorting stocks is the way to go, but I think you are crazy shorting this stock when there are so many other good candidates.
All Intuit has to do is double their prices tommorrow, and their customers will be forced to pay them---that is their business model. I am not saying they will double them tommorrow---they like to have a nice even growth curve, so each year they look at how many customers they acquired, how many they lost, and then adjust their prices accordingly. Guess what? If you use their software, you will pay the extortion fee because changing accounting software is a nightmare. Guess what? Intuit knows this---that is what their business model is based on.
If they don't charge customers for their products, then they won't be able to pay their employees and then they won't have a product to sell. We pay "extortion" fees to many different software companies. It's called yearly license fees to use their software. And their extortion fees are more than Intuit's. Our government is slowly taking over the economy and will someday be able to make all these companies stop charging for their products and force people to work for these companies and the gov't will provide us food and shelter and we'll all experience a peace and happiness like never before.
