Die Shortquote lag gestern wieder über 60%, ist also im Vergleich zu Vorgestern, sogar leicht gestiegen! Trotzdem ist sie Gestern schön gestiegen, mit nur wenigen Rücksetzern! Kaufdruck war dann wohl größer als ich dachte! Die erste Stunde wird heute wohl entscheidend sein, wohin die Reise geht! Massive Shortattacke, um Gewinnmitnahmen auszulösen, halte ich für wahrscheinlich..

17% vom Float bzw. über 200k pro Tag, können die ins Bid hauen, um den Preis zu drücken! Kein Wunder, dass PN bei nem Volumen von 150-300K nicht aus dem Knick kommt! Müsste verboten werden, wenn man mich fragt! Zumindest in dieser Menge!
Man o man! Das soll mal einer verstehen!? Die EPS-Erwartungen wurden um 6 verfehlt, das stimmt schon! Bei den 3. Quartalszahlen wurden die Erwartungen aber auch verfehlt! Trotzdem stieg der Preis von 13$ auf 14,50$. Die Zahlen sehen ansonsten sehr gut aus, oder nicht? Ordentliches Wachstum, Aquisitionen, Präsenz am Markt wurde erhöht etc.
Meine Erklärung für den Rutsch wäre daher folgende: Gleich zu Beginn, wurde eine Shortattacke gestartet, die ne Menge Stoploss-Orders ausgelöst hat und den Rest hat die Panik erledigt! Dafür spricht, dass Gestern etwa 300K Short verkauft wurde, was bei einem Volumen von 2 Millionen, also etwa das 10+fache der letzten Tage, nicht soo viel ist, das meiste davon aber in der ersten Halben Stunde Ins Bid geworfen wurde.
Folglich müßte es heute eigentlich eine Recht starke Gegenbewegung geben! Die Aussichten, gerade für Long-Positionen, sind aus meiner Sicht mehr als gut, von diesem Level aus.
