    Forget about the shorts

    The short interest from March 15 to April 15 went from about 25,000 shares to 125,000 shares. Look at the "Hidden in plain sight" timeline and remember that this is the highest reported short position ever for ANLT. The next reporting period is late May and I suspect that the short interest over a the prior three months looks like a bell curve with the apex coinciding with the issuance of the CFRA report.

    FWIW, if the tax laws regarding shorts against the box hadn't been changed, I would of shorted above $50. Clearly the stock was ahead of itself. The question is whether there was collusion between the long and short report. I suspect a game was played but that's ancient history.

    There's no money to be made on the short side from these levels unless the entire market comes down, in that case why mess with ANLT's potential for upside dynamite, buy some S&P puts.
