You're investing based on the opinions of a handful of people posting on a message board? lol. What are you....12?
"Everyone is bullish"? All 3 posters? heheheheh. Too funny.
Shorting a stock with a two week deadline for a buyout where the largest shareholder and founder wants to take it private and has publicly made his intentions known (as opposed to just a rumour? Brilliant.
The whole market looks like its going to start declining, recession on the horizon, etc., and you choose the one stock that might instantly crush your short?
Good luck! It may or may not happen tomorrow, but I would make sure I am covered by the weekend. Related to rumors, sometimes they are true, sometimes they are out of touch with reality. This one (that there will be BO) is very real on many accounts and saying there are "easy money" laying around is at minimum dishonest. I've been through several BO with different stocks and this one is one of the most dated and obvious ones to me.
Guys. Did you even read the star tribune article? Says he may only offer 18-19 next week which they expect the board to immediately reject. We'd likely hear about this low offer after the board rejects and then it tanks.
