    Comments

    I don't see the big deal since there is still one buy and sell like with all trades. They often warn longs of danger too. I remember considering lphi. The first warning that it wasn't such a great deal was the number of shorts. Investigation showed the original hint to be right. They're far more often symptomatic of trouble than trouble themselves.

    @Zach: Everything you say is true. I just note that I've rarely, if ever, heard politicos yell about shorts when times are good.

    Former GE chairmain Jack Welch's definition of a politician: "They exist to blame everybody else when things go wrong." Short-sellers are just a target of opportunity for these clowns.

    I think shorts have gotten a bad reputation largely due to the anonymous names to post on stock message boards predicting doom and gloom for a stock, all based on dubious information. I have nothing against someone that shorts stocks without using such tactics.
