So if I paid $26.28 for that GWR, and it was $13.14 now, it would be a half-bagger, not a -0.5 bagger, right? It would go negative only if I sold short and got squoze out, whereby I could lose more than my initial investment?

Right, that would be trading money for agony, or in your example, losing money accompanied by more agony.
