I have been wondering about the end game of shorts for awhile. Yesterday I checked out the short reporting over the last few years and realized that the vast majority of short positions were initiated at $28. Most intelligent shorts have maintained that core position and traded the swings. Even if we go back to 20 they will still be very profitable. Shorts aren't worried about being wrong or right about accusations against this stock, only making money. Even a really good short squeeze will be hard pressed to get back up to 28 right now, and they would still have made a ton of money off this.
