If you look at historical lows it's not far from the bottom that it has
been at.

A short borrows shares from broker (Higher Price) and sells them.
After the price has dropped (Lower Price) he buys them back up
and then sells them when the price climbs again.

If a short buys now and price goes up he will lose money not gain.

In other words it is not short worthy until it hits about $6.00.



(Increased earnings, alot of subs,reporting a gain per quarter, Media news scares a short
because if it goes up instead of down he will lose his shirt!)
