Can we short them? ;)

I believe Robinhood is not public but even if it were I would not short any stock directly because it's the worst risk-reward trade one can make. Limited profit (the sale price less expenses) and unlimited liability (how high the moon?). If you must short, use options. A put increases in value as the stock's price drops but the put can expire before the short plays out. Buy short leaps! The most you can lose is your premium. You make the intrinsic value of the put, strike price - stock price - put premium.

Being an optimist by nature, I play long!
