Oil driller Resolute Energy ($REN stock) has been on a tear the past 2 months ripping from $3 to $20. We have been watching the price action on this stock like a hawk the past week. Patience is key in shorting small cap runners. After the past 7 trading days, we felt it was time to initiate our short position in $REN.

The stock got hammered 2 days in a row last week and we noticed the selling all occurred in the last 30 minutes of trading. That to us signaled a forced dump by someone. We started picking...
