I am stupified that traders can breeze into this stock and think that shorting makes sense. All the DD needed is to view the two year chart and read a few articles. I think they are simply lazy and gluttons for punishment. I learned a long time ago that it is real money you lay out on a flyer so don't do it unless you have some very special insight not shared by many other investors that has a foundation base on reality rather wishful thinking. That is how Buffet invests albeit in a very different league of investors and investments.
These guys don't really short the stock, which would require more nerve - and margin - than they possess. They gamble on some cheap puts, which is about like buying a lottery ticket. When this showed a reluctance to go below 18 yesterday as the biopharm sector was collapsing, it was obvious that the stock is under accumulation ahead of earnings.
