Too funny... like you know what people are doing with their money..... I'm pretty sure they are shorting it to zero
You talk like you know what you are talking about but you don't. All of that certainty and bravado from over a dollar to .37 and sinking... I've seen so many guys like you... guys who are in soo deep they can't bring themselves to see the truth anymore
Shorts are here big time because DJ lost 5 cents last Q!! Not 1 cent. 5 cents!! They appear not to know how to run a business. But instead of demanding accountability, you sit here and complain about the shorts who came to make money off of this dead carcass. You are like a dork on the side of the road trying to give CPR to roadkill.
Distributors are also screwed if they go under, so they have skin in game. Remember when their chief technology officer went to the West Coast distributor instead of staying at CPST. That spoke VOLUMES!
