Odd to see such a topic from our most notable SHORT
"Pumpers Modus Operandi: Pump and Sell to the Greater Fool" GeedoubleUPee
Funny you should chastise folks for first buying and then selling.
I guess the problem is they actually bought before they sell whereas you sold what wasn't your's.
So if owners sell to the greater fool according to you, who do short sellers sell to?
If moral punishment is to be dished out here I think the priority needs to be clear. There can be no doubt that a short seller believes he's selling to a fool but to assume an investor thinks the same way is asinine. Buying because the company is likely to be bought out does not imply the suitor is a fool. So we wait for Takeda.
