It is hard to respond to something like that. Stop being so immature! Every smart investor I have met always considers the worst case scenario and looks at downside risk. Even the greatest investment has downside risk, and only fools deny that their investment is the lone exception.
I am not sure why you are so concerned about shorts. Again, if you are correct and Hextend sells big time and BTIM is earning a couple bucks a share in a year or two, it won't matter what the shorts do.
