Oh, and really, do you believe you know all the places they have units and the type of people who rent them?Come on. You live next to one and possibly know about another. I've read through many of the complaints about this company. They do have some. But considering the amount of units they rent to the number of complaints, it's not a bad record. If you go through and look at other storage facilities and their complaints, it seems PSA % wise has far fewer.
I'm thinking your reasoning makes little sense. Do you really believe politicians would pick out one company to make there point, if they are even thinking that.
I've followed and owned this stock since it was in the 80's. That was over a hundred dollars a share ago. Dips like this are where you can make some fairly quick money. My predictions would be this stock is back over 200 in 90 days or so. I've bought some more at 188 and have put in several option bids. Short it if you like, that's your choice. But if I were you, I'd wait till it was around 204 or so before I risked shorting.
