Rvbd was in the 18 dollar range about 5 months ago, now it's trading in the upper 20s. At the start of February it was around $23 now it's at 27... I think you need to redefine what a " bad investment" is. Yea RVBD has fallen significantly the last two days, ( but what didn't?). Rvbd's performance over the past 4 or 5 months has been stellar. If you've shorted the stock, you're the persons who''s acting as a misinformed "idiot". And maybe you should think of getting a professional who can assist you on choosing which stocks to short.
