Arotech (TIcker: ARTX) has the answer to TSLA fires. One of their divisions make zinc-air and lithium batteries for the military. They have a demo on their website which shows that the battery does not expode or catch fire, even after being shot at. They compare that to an older model of their battery which goes up in flames when hit by a gunshot. If they have the technology, TSLA should look into it. With the FIRE issue resolved, I'm sure TSLA would be a $200 stock.
The short interest decreased from 14 million on 11/29/2013 to 11.7 million on 12/13/2013, a decrease of 1.3 million. It will be interesting to see how much it decreases by 12/31/2013. Taek-Geun Kwon of Toro investments, a hedge fund which has increased its shares in NQ, following the Muddy Waters allegations, said that the short interest cannot materially increase from these levels because the rest of the shares are in "sticky" hands.
The LONGS will win in the end. All of MW's fraud allegations have been refuted pretty forcefully and hedge funds like Oberweis, Royce, Hood River Capital, CR Intrinsic, Altimeter have taken new positions or increased their position in NQ. These folks have gone to CHINA and done their due diligence - talked to NQ management, checked out their cash balances, talked to their customers, channel partners and fully vetted the company from all angles. The company management has gone to great lengths to be completely transparent in this battle against the SHORTS and they seem very up and up. The company is hitting on all cylinders, their profits are rising, their revenue projections are quite optimistic and they are announcing new deals with major players and entering new markets. I am very optimistic with respect to the company's future.
