The reason why star_hominid does not want XIN to rise too fast...
He claimed that he had 98000 shares and it seems he is a hard long.
But from his attitude, he does not want to see XIN rising.
So why is that?
This might be the reason: Maybe he had sold some covered calls.
If XIN rises too fast say reached $10 in three months, his 98000 shares(if he was not lying) will be called away so he would have lost both the dividend and the gain above $10.
If he could help to keep XIN trading under $8 in next three months,
he would gain on the expired options(the covered calls that he sold earlier), this way,
he could keep his cost on XIN lower and lower.
But once the market has discovered the value of XIN, this stock is going to rise quickly.
And he would risk losing his shares.
So if he is wise, he should have bought back his covered calls and starting posting
positive things about XIN to help the market to discover the value in XIN.
