The way I see it...it seems 'shorts' want to beat down the one stock that'll probably release good news later. That way they make $$ beating it down and then --being confident--they just have to stop at some point and ride the pop and win on the way up too.
Could be just cleaning house of the incompetent losers
So then why doesn't this great news show up in the share price?? Plus I hear on the news natural gas plays are supposed to be getting better except this losing company...why?
This is true, when the stock market is tanking in other areas--like oil, fund managers sell "good" stocks in order to balance the losses.
