"The thing I respect about Flea is that he posts when he's going short and when he's covered."
Flea is a great guy and has been studying this stock for years. But I don't see enough information in his "short @ x" and "long @ y" posts to guess whether he is making money or losing money. Not trying to start an argument, just saying I don't quite see all the info there.
But, OMG, what am I saying, of course everybody on the internet always makes big money on every trade!!! I can't believe the brokers settle for fixed commissions when they could be taking a %%% of the profit$$$!!!
