IMHO way to risky to be short down here in the 3's, but each to their own. ANV could get a buyout offer and shorts could get squeezed badly. Wouldn't be the first time that's happened lol.
One things for sure, ANV has a massive proven reserve and has managed to remain profitable even while seeing it's stock get crushed.
Reminds me of all those shorts in 08-09 crash who said PIR was going bankrupt and made believers of the masses except a few. The stock bottomed at .10 cents, but the company was still doing fine. Many who bought under a buck made massive gains :-)
I don't care how low shorts and sellers take this stock, I'll continue scaling in my long position, at least until I see a reason not to.
