    We'll see after the June ER. Someone here should take the time to explain the shorters options on this and how this issue will effect the SP in near and far term perspective for the new BB investor. As you've noticed we have quite the crowd on this thread now and there are issues with the shorted shares that should be explained. For example, out of the millions of shorted shares, how are the shorts going to recover and what effect does this have? Also, what happens if they can't recover? Basically, near and far term perspectives due to this unique situation.

    At what point can the shorts totally control and thus destroy a stock?
    That my friend is exactly what I was getting at. Somebody with some savy needs to explain this.

    Well, my wife bought an Oleander bush in a pot and after two weeks has decided it needs to live in the ground. I'm off to dig a hole. Be back in a bit.

    In this case they can't...the institutional longs control the company. NFLX is a recent example...The shorts had to cover and the price went up. The shorts are most likely still shorting them, just at todays valuation (opening positions now).

    I don't know of its bears raiding the stock or just day traders seeing that it's at the top of the channel taking profits and buying back in. I know one of my investment banker friends said this stock is all about day trading.

    They can't completely as they will have to buy back at some point.

    Yes. I feel really bad for the families when they show this kind of footage so soon after the tragedy. Not a lot of compassion these days.

    Yep. His niece on the other side of the country. He put up some YouTube videos and ended up with a ton of followers. Eventually he quit his job to do the site full time. He's got 2 degrees from MIT and another from Harvard (I believe).

    Almost 120,000 BBRY calls traded versus 44,500 puts yesterday, as its total option volume was more than triple its daily average.

    volatility is the friend of the value investor.

    Why do you think you could buy BBRY for under $8/share at one time? You have shorts to thank.
