    Eliminating dividend taxation

    hoe_hsu_wu says: "One can�t get rich watching stock moving in pennies day in and day out."

    No, but then please do tell us how the shorts can get rich doing the same thing?

    Posts like that, saying AHR only moves up and down pennies while paying dividends exceeding 12.5%, only tell everyone here that you know very, very little about selecting shorting candidates. It also says AHR will likely go no where but up when you learn that or accept that fact and cover your short.

    At least the longs can collect their $.35 quarterly dividends here while the shorts have to pay $.35 quarterly. Hmmmm... doesn't that logically mean the longs here are better off than the shorts with AHR having so little volotility?

    How about talking about AHRs fundamentals and their specific holdings and why AHR vs. all the other mortgage REITs, tech stocks, large caps. etc., became your choice to short. That may provide some insight for some of us to sell our AHR shares.

    I, for one, am tired of all the messages here from shorts and responses to shorts that have no meat at all about AHR. Just a waste of time reading them.

    Give us your specific FUNDAMENTAL reasons we should sell AHR or stop your silly posts and at least ACT like a pro and just wait it out and see who is correct here, the longs or the shorts.

    Talk about LOST opportunity cost with your short of AHR. I almost feel sorry for your losses this year while other rank amateur shorts could have thrown darts to select their short candidate and would likely be laughing all the way to the bank.

    You are the epitome of an inept shorter. So why should anyone even bother reading your silly posts here?
