Thanks to you both. Maybe a little of each, but the timing fits with the Yellen talk. Traders may have used that. We'll probably never know for sure. Have a GREAT Christmas Holiday!
I'm sure you realize that an intelligent short seller can hedge his position to protect himself. Of course if he shorted in the high $20's or low $30's, he's not overly concerned with hedges. In other words, they're not all MORONIC SHORTS. As a matter fact, I'd be willing to bet that for the past few weeks they've made WAAAY more money on LNCO than you or me.
Good to hear from you as well. Over the years I have come to the conclusion that I am a lousy trader. So I try to find companies that I like, research the heck out of them and ride them out. In hindsight this has cost me untold numbers of trading opportunities, but hopefully it pans out in the long run. LNCO & HYGS are prime examples. They both fell much greater than I expected, but I used those drops to increase my position. Never sold a single share. At least LNCO gives me a nice little payday every month. HYGS had some issues with product deliveries in the 4th quarter, but that will only increase the 1st quarter next year. They should be the first Hydrogen related company to show a profit. With their current and future technologies, I see an awesome future worldwide. Best of luck and have a GREAT Christmas Holiday Season!
All of these message boards are rife with individuals "trying to influence the stock price for his or her gain in a possibly illegal fashion." My guess would be that it would be difficult at best to get someone at the federal level to even take you seriously. Not to mention the fact that these message boards are seen by only the tiniest fraction of investors. And then only the tiniest fraction of them is naive enough to make investment decisions based on what they read on a message board. Everyone who posts here has an agenda one way or another. You need to be able to separate the wheat from the chaff.
It wasn't all that long ago that people here objected to a rumored buyout at $45 or $50 for the same reasons. This time I totally agree, even though I only have 1,000 shares left. $2 or $3 won't go very far helping recoup even a tiny part of my original investment.
Excellent article. Thank you. It certainly gave me a much better understanding of the technologies involved. Imagine the potential if the US gets involved (I say this based on the last paragraph.)
