Not once did I cheer when it fell when I didn't short. It's a bit cynical to do so if you ask me.
i do not short and i do not trade on margin. when shorting you have limited upside but unlimited downside and that is not a ratio i want to trade on. secondly i have been saying for almost two years that this stock is propped up by algos and you can channel trade it from 260-350 several times but more important is the fact that i have no interest in the company, i dont like the product nor the management. same with fb. i have similar feelings on fb. i don't care if it doubles or troubles; i would never put one dime into that company. money is not the only factor when it comes to my life so simply because there are opportunities to make money i take the entire scenario into consideration and what it is that i am investing in and with whom. if i do not like what i see or who i see i do not participate. lastly, there are far better companies to throw your money into without as much headline risk or without a person like musk at the helm and associated with the brand.
