"Just intellectual curiosity (since this trade is not for us mere mortals) but how hard is it to get a borrow and how expensive is it right now?"

Cheap and plentiful. ~2% annual borrow. Few hundred K shares available at IB, more elsewhere I understand.

Short seems very timely Naj... good on you. I'm short around ~$310 average, started maybe ~4-5 months ago and have upped a bit recently.

Seems to tick almost all the boxes, there is some risk, but I think if they can right this ship it will go through a period and news flow which will lead the shares lower in the term, so shorting is a pretty good bet here for sure.

That NYT article was amazing.
