'Jazbo' was one of the standout shorters.

That's interesting, but there are no ticker designations for BORL either.

Maybe they bought out SBAS and subsequently went under(?)

I actually see them clearly in a google search as if they are active - but no ticker ----- I thought I might go ahead and 'ride them to the MOON!'
