well, what I don't get is "this is a short biased article and you should assume the author holds a short position. is that what their disclosure says? he needs to disclose his position, not a blanket statement. "assume" is that correct? and furthermore I have a problem with writing articles to move the stock and their thinking the disclosure gives them free reign. I may call someone on this. has anyone every called the NASD that's a fun bunch. go on line and check out how easy is it is to file a complaint. as they say his license probably looks like swiss cheese anyway. but it might be worth it.
He did disclose his short. The article dated July 31st-seeking alpha is still available on the quote page. His short is disclosed at the very beginning and the disclosure of the firm he works for is at the bottom.
They make those articles very long for a reason. Many never get to the very bottom where the disclosure is. These bear raid firms make a good living doing this. Probably one of the most famous (and effective) is Citron research.
Yes, and guess what that ^%#^#&* is paying the recent 8% increase plus the 14% dividend and the stock hasn't even made its strong run-up back to fair-value in the high 7's or 8's. This could be a $10 stock within a few months. Tell that to your short clients BA.
What I don't get is that #$%$ prediction of 4 dollars a share at a multiple of 7. The P/E (multiple) has already dropped to just under 6 and it is still trading way above 4. That article is flawed in addition to being a generic bear raid article.
