An "avulsion" occurs when an entire structure, or part of it, has been forcibly pulled away from a patient's body. A short-seller might know it as getting his or her "face ripped off" when a short position runs substantially against them, resulting in large losses.
If a short-seller has a position in CALL for fundamental reasons, he'll have to wait until April 4th (next earnings release) before he has a hope of fundamentals driving the stock down. Meanwhile, there is significant support behind the stock, Tilson blasted an email out last night after its wide-spread "leakage" last Friday, momo guys are getting into the stock (already up another 5% pre-market), and 43% of the float was short as of three weeks ago.
The stock is currently well above its 200DMA which means the average holder in the stock over the last year is up, and the average short position is down.
So we've got a stock that's heavily shorted, no fundamental reports to drive it down for another 2.5 months (if they even would drive it down which is doubtful because things are looking pretty good), most shorts in the name have lost money, and three weeks of trading volume is sold short...
If I was short, I'd want the f*** out of this thing even if I still believed in my fundamental thesis, which may or may not be correct anyway. I think current shorts in CALL will begin to feel this way in the VERY near term (i.e. this morning) if they haven't already.
I believe the next deadline for CALL annual 10-K earnings is March 17 2014 or April 1 2014 if CALL files an extension like they did with the last 10-K.I would expect their earnings in March until they release the actual earnings date.
