this article is a joke, it's LTBH in reverse, don't buy a short unless you can hold it 20 years gimme a break. Must be another short seller out there TMF could interview, how long did it take TMF to find a short seller that believes in LTSH. On top of it he talks of holding JNPR as it went against him for 150 points, who cares if it worked out in the end, no way to know that at 330 and what about the margin calls as it moves higher. Anyone that holds a losing position that large is a wipe-out waiting to happen long or short. If you want to gamble on 150 point losses buy some put leaps at least your risk is defined and if it's not working after 7-12 months time to admit your wrong and move on.

dangerous, dangerous information in that article, yet another TMF article with no exit plan once you take a position no matter how bad it gets. Very sad after all the pain from fool advice in 99-2000 not to mention the current mini bubble that is murdering followers yet again, KKD comes to mind.

I will give TMFTwitty some credit for having the guts to post that link over here although it is obvious he hasn't read many posts here.
