I wish I was smart enough to short as I would be rich. I always lose money and am poor. I wish I was as smart as you think. I just got burned so bad and continue to get burned. Why the company doesn't do anything I don't now. They could even force their executives to buy just 5,000 shares each and that would stabilize the stock. I called them last Friday to do that and they haven't.
Also, they could make an announcement that the Board of Directors set aside say $10 million to buy back stock. They don't even have to buy the stock just announce it and the stock will go up.
