To often, I have seen a stock sp go down and then go sharply higher. Like GOOG or FB. Being a conspiracy theory(they all are conspiring against me) I believe some like minded powerhouses are running algos until a certain low sp is reached-similar to weak hands game. So, I am not selling. I think their earnings will be so-so but the forcast will be great.
I called Schwab as to what is "substitute inc payment" apparently broker pays dividend for share they allow to be shorted. They settle up later. That allows as many shorts as there are shares even(IMO) allows the shorts to pay the distribution on MARGIN???... No wonder, the shorts don't seemed to care. I refer to my May 21 distribution. On the other side of the coin--when the shorts have to cover.... However, I just had a thought-----is there a linkage between fees and sorts DD required; only my opinion.
I have no idea. It seems in this market that you can not tell if a stock is going down for reason or going down for the adage of sell some to buy some. Makes for a difficult market for me(I represent weak hands). Being a conspiracy theory type of guy--I think the agols are stats are stacked against the weak hands.
