He is a technical analysis believer. That is okay, I am a fundamental guy. He appears to look at the fundamentals as well or he would not say it is a good company. He is looking at the overall trend of sharp rises after the earnings reports then slippage until the next earning report is released. <br /> I think what his play is he can short the stock now. Then right before the earnings are due buy some stock, sell after earnings then again short the stock for the ride down. <br /> My thought is You could get stuck with a huge short if the company begins to inform the investment community more often then just the earnings report. <br /> Does that sound about right? I don't want to put words in your mouth.
