The Nasdaq web site lists a modest short interest of 306,462 on Jan. 15. Not clear whether this is market makers or retail.
I wouldn't want to be short against Paulsen's position. His man on the SPMD board has an investment banking background and could be working on a merger deal with RH Donnelly. Big upside risk, but not much downside potential with a likely PE ratio of 2 or 3 times next years earnings.
guru: You may be right in the long term that SPMD will not survive, but as a short you could be forced to buy back your shares at an inopportune moment if merger talks are announced.
Believe what you will. Post your email address and I will show you my trades. And if you do the math a 5 million shares at 2 cents, it's a meaningless $100k. And as for Schwab, maybe you do not have access to the trading levels I have. But if you call them and ask if the stock has been shorted, they will tell you it has.
