It's certainly nice to watch...from the sidelines.
Somebody bought at over $480 an hour ago. It's at $264 right now.


Sundry comments:

* Do we really believe that they were more shares short than exist? Colour me dubious.
Sounds more like a flaw in the way the short percent was calculated.
(Unless you count short derivatives, of course, but the link said shares)
Among other things, it would be wildly and visibly illegal.

* He who sells what isn' his'n
Must buy it back or go to pris'n

* The one thing I haven't quite spotted is the motive for the swarm.
Pumping a stock's price is expensive and risky.
Sure, some will make some bucks speculating on the way up.
Others in their group will lose the same amount on the way down.
