    22 Million Short

    I have trouble understanding why anyone would short a high dividend-paying stock like PBCT unless they really expect the dividend to be cut or omitted. Given the low probability of that happening and the reasonable possibility of a takeover at a premium, it looks to me as if someone is taking a hell of a gamble by being short.
