I got out of this stock a number of months ago and absorbed a good-sized loss BECAUSE there seems to be a 30 % + float which appears to be shorted each and every (expletive deleted) day by market makers !!! The Company (Allied Nevada) seems either powerless or reluctant to do anything about it, and I for one do not understand this one bit. If someone was purposely doing this to your stock each and every day, wouldn't you want to teach them a lesson and force them to take a giant loss !! The Company even admits to this "Big Short" as they characterize it, but does absolutely nothing to take them on. Gosh who knows, maybe the Company is making money off of the shorting !!!!!!!
