An answer I am copying from elsewhere.

TMF is not actively shorting the stock. However, they have sold calls against DDD. In this case, the sold calls are balanced by a long position (they own DDD stock) to create a neutral to mildly bullish options strategy called a covered call.

Hope that helps.
