    Buy KKD - The long argument

    "What part of that don't you understand?" ----I dunno, I guess I'm just not as smart as you guys.

    But to elaborate on the discussion, things have been posted that made me wonder, and that lead to my comments. Take meme for example. I've never read anything about a position, or how to specifically capitalize on all the analysis. Add to that her comment to 'undervalued' (who was buying) that "you're just a speculator", and it makes me wonder.

    Let me explain- I think (I would hope) we could all agree that short selling comes under the category of SPECULATION. (It's not investing in a stock; investing in a stock involves supplying a compnay with capital in some way, via the purchase of its stock or bonds.) I also acknowledge that in addition to short selling, speculation CAN involve buying a stock as well. So while buying a stock can be deemed either "investing" or "speculation", short selling can only come under the category of speculation.

    So if that's the case, and meme clearly showed her disdain for someone who is "just a speculator", then one assumes that meme would never short the stock because then she would be "just a speculator".

    So if she's clearly not long, and would not stoop to speculation by going short, then what's the motivation???

    Hence my comments- why are they doing this? "That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it"
