    Shorts and Management

    Shorted shares increased by 1 million over the past month, and now constitute 21% of float. That is very large. Management gives guidance which is at odds with realistic expectations for the next year. [Look at RGR's buying a new factory to increase production.] Who is helped by management's guidance? Could it be shorts?

    • Guidance can't even be increased as swhc is at capacity, thus sales can only stay the same go down for future guidance. Not sure how bagholders can't grasp this reality.

        One thing investors should be alert to is the number of SHORTS posting messages that make them look like they are long. Some do it better than others. Truth is most "shorts" are better investors than most "longs" because they understand how the game is played to make the "longs" do what they want them to do while many longs don't even know what's happening to them like the comment just made to me, short covering causes the PPS to go up. In some cases it does but in many cases it doesn't when it is controlled by the HF's.
        The statement you made that sales can only stay the same or go down, is not true an leads me to believe you are short. There are many ways to increase production, 3 shifts, overtime, out-
        sourcing, leasing equipment or more place, even increasing prices which goes to the bottom line. You want top dollar for max production.

        Beware of the "shorts" posting on this MB they want you to sell !

      • Datbewrong again. They raised their FY '14 Sales Guidance by $5M.
