To me at this point, it is not about whether the shorts are correct or not, but it is about whether I trust the management. I don't.

Even if it is a great company with great potential, if you cannot trust the management, then why bother?


CM is right on this...#1- always consider first the reasons not to buy a particular stock and #2- paramount is management quality. In the end, it's management that makes or breaks a company.

The fact that EBIX remains vulnerable to short attacks is keeping me from re-establishing a position. I've taken two relatively small losses so far, which I am certain will prove to be the most profitable long run attitude, whether EBIX is forced out of business or returns to the high $20s.

#3- we never need to be in a hurry to buy.

-Randy, who nevertheless remains ready to buy; in the absence of further hard information, EBIX remains a $30 stock vulnerable to short attacks that will take the share price much lower than it is now.
