Lovely advice coming from a message board: <<If I had one piece of advise [sic] to give you it would be to try inasmuch as possible to do the opposite of what people on the message boards urge you to do.>>
Have you ever heard of the Epimenides paradox or the Eubulides Paradox?
Problem with that analysis is the same problem with GGR. Because it went up strongly in the past, many extrapolate that into the future, completely ignoring valuation. In the end, valuation ALWAYS matters. Sometimes it takes awhile for stocks to be exposed.
Sorry but I don't know anything about BRN. This I do know about splits though, particularly ones that drive the stock 35% higher upon announcement, that they are often one of the easiest quick shorts around. They become sell-the-news events.
If I had one piece of advise to give you it would be to try inasmuch as possible to do the opposite of what people on the message boards urge you to do. It's what I do and it has served me very well. You can hardly lose if you take that to heart.
Thanks for asking. At one point ABLE was my largest short position ever. Unfortunately borrowing the stock was nearly impossible for long stretches and when I would have wanted to borrow a lot more (in the high teens) it was usually unavailable. I ended up with roughly 30,000 between me and the account I manage for my mother. Combined ave price is around 12.60. You do the math.
