It's not just Seeking Alpha. You should expect these kinds of negative writing/articles on any stock that has this high short %. Just know why you bought it in the first place and not listen to everything you read/hear. They know they can be screwed big time if it doesn't move their direction and coverage starts happening.
Trust me, it's definitely not the worse. If somehow it gets to $15 by Friday it's because of the economy. I really doubt it will though. Almost every stock is down today by quite a bit. Still not too sure what sparked it but I guess today is when people are starting to worry about the government shutdown and the default I guess. Great time to buy when people are fearful as Buffet would say.
I agree, there are a couple of bad signs but no great reward comes without risk. I just think the reward outweighs the risk. It's up to you what you want to do but if I was going to gamble I would buy instead of sell. This stock can really go eitherway but if it goes up it'll really skyrocket. If it goes down it's not going down by much. Also, I think the likelihood of it going up is greater than it going down.
Uni-Pixel has a 50.9% Short % of Float as of Sep 13, 2013. Around that time it did look like it was going to plummet further when it created the head and shoulders pattern but instead of falling below neck line it moved up which is terrible for the shorts. over 50% short % of float is extremely high and has the potential to explode once the shorts have to cover. Out of all the analyst covering the stock it has 1 strong buy and 3 buy rating with a low target of $40 and a high of $50. It's currently at $18.94 which makes it a great time to get in if you're not already and to buy more if you're already in. It may go a bit lower from 18.94 but I wouldn't chance it. Just don't panic and know it'll be above 18.94 very soon. There's way more upside to buying then selling this stock. It looks like it has already hit bottom and is making higher highs and higher lows which is a bullish technical stand point. I don't think I've ever seen anything with this high short % look this good and overall the rewards totally outweigh the risk. If we can get everyone to buy and make the shorts cover this stock can really sky rocket sooner rather then later. The way it's looking the shorts will eventually have to cover. It's just a matter of time.
