I was only long and stubborn years ago. I didn't believe what I saw and I used to hope. But if you believe "the trend is your friend", then you have to play both sides. NTOP may be worth $200 ultimately, but who cares? Its short-term trend is down. When I see a confirmed uptrend again, I'll be a buyer again. Trend reversal takes time. When a stock reaches its top in price, because there is still enough speculative bullish interest, supplies coming into the market are well absorbed
and prices won't go down sharply initially. But, many longs tend to misunderstand this phenomenon and think the price holds well.
