The problem facing prognosticators of this stock's future could lie in their not understanding that many of the large holders have no intention of selling enough at these levels to supply the number of shares the shorts need to cover.
And unless the shorts find someone willing to lend shares, or decide to dispense with borrowing, there may not be the kind of sales that will tank the stock in a hurry.
holders minds are indeed to hold for sp levels far higher than it is today. Add to that the fact that early on this company's intention was to become a dividend paying company, collecting royalties and distributing them to its shareholders. I haven't seen anything which suggests that has changed. So, there are many reasons, but the fact, I think is clear to everyone is that there are substantial holders who won't let this stock go until it sails way above the teens.
