Put it this way: If I owned any shares, I'd sure as hell sell at today's prices ($71.40 as I type).

I have shorted it 3-4 times and made money on it each time.
Just going by gut feel when a sharp up-spike isn't likely to last, backed
up by cold analysis that the growth required to justify current valuation
is just too big to be plausible.
Plus, there is probably more dilution coming.

I find short selling is all about small positions.
Preferably lots of 'em, total no more than 10% of your portfolio, and not all the time.
The stock prices of bad businesses are fundamentally less predictable than those of good ones.
