eh I disagree. Why do we assume the shorts are actual players trying to generate alpha on a short bet of SRPT. I would argue that the shorts are the usual suspects (IE PERCEPTIVE ADVISORS) and other serious longs who are hedging, and the boys up in Connecticut who are short the stock and long the calls. I also don't think there is any one specific short who is not hedged and is concerned about the Month end NAV number it shows investors. If there are any true naked shorts, its not a sizeable position. 95% of the shorts are longs playing it another way or hedging.
You know this though.
