    A strategy observed lately is

    where the CEO of a company decreases next Qs estimate after a reported slow Q only to give the company and it's long term share holders a chance to buy shares at lower prices after a significant drop only to surprise to the up side on the next earnings call.. This is something that has been observed more and more lately by CEOs as strategy to boost company valuation while at he same time knowingly cause harm to day traders and short sellers. JMO, but something to think about whenever you're considering your next short or buy in any stock that recently reported bad earnings with a poor outlook.

    P.S. I am currently looking at establishing a long position on SWI, but waiting to see if it stabilizes before buying.
