This is the third time we took a short position in $OceanPowerTechnologies ($OPTT stock) since June. Once again clueless long chasers, sheep who cannot read nor understand a financial balance sheet, ripped this stock up to stratospheric levels making it a prime target for a short swing trade. We started shorting OPTT in the $10s and kept adding to the position as high as the $15s. Why add to a losing position most of you will ask?...

We shorted into strength and decided to hold the position...

Community Health hospitals spun off their Quorumealth division ($QHC stock) last week. Many times spin-offs give a great chance for investors to buy the spun off asset on the cheap. This is because when a company gets spun off, lots of investors may not want the newly spun off company and usually what happens is they just dump it right away. This causes the spun off stock to tank in a short amount of time. And with big institutional...
