  • Returning the jab at the shorts was important and backing it with SEC filings is crucial. It's a balancing act, however, and one should not spare more than a measured response to keep these wolves at bay. Earnings will matter and I believe you won't be a victim of the "Rosen"s and "Stein"s if you keep it this way.

  • CXDC management: if you're in the right, fight this short attack PROMPTLY. Don't let any suspicions linger and grow. What the market fears the most is uncertainty (over a possibly negative outlook). Look at what happened to NQ, based entirely on rumors and spins to this point, as they chose to mostly ignore the short's allegations. The shorts bank on the assumption that a small Chinese company doesn't have the clout and smarts to fight this. Sue Rosen and Bleecker PROMPTLY and you will also recover your legal fees.

  • Barring any counter-climactic news, this could gap up on Monday. Swing-traders sold off for a quick buck today. Momentum might have changed to up, even in the absence of the report. Solid news today. Anything is possible but hard to believe they would fabricate figures and put themselves on the line like that. This company sells for an incredible discount all the way to $25.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • Their fingers were burning on the trigger. They said, too many quiet days, looks weak, no bounce, time for another down. Unless that someone dropping today's 500k shares is in the know and we'll have news tomorrow. Barring that, I'd say the shorts jumped the gun and you should hold on to your shares. You haven't lost until you sold.

    Sentiment: Hold

    I agree with bw. Unless they have something solid or final to say, the company should stay quiet and firm at this point. The shorts are out to spin every news release into negativity. What the company could and should do while awaiting is to buy back shares aggressively. I'm not sure they do that, unfortunately. In fact I'm a little worried they don't. Shares are still widely available for shorting without any htb (hard to borrow) label at brokerages.

    Sentiment: Hold
