I have heard Cern is a well shorted stock! Interesting! October could prove tense for all stocks. I have held many shares since early 2000's and have witnessed 3 splits and many negative stories about Cern. I am betting on CERN until end of 2014. They are domestic and international, they have incredible bookings, and have many billions in BACKLOGS. As well, they have innovative software that is cloud based, and the fact that they dominate the hospital business is a large positive. I believe Oct. earnings will be VERY GOOD! If I were shorting stocks, I would short the APP stocks like YELP and LinkedIn. Momentum stocks with unjustified stock prices and EPS. Add TSLA to that list. That BUBBLE will break! When, I do not know.
