Satisfying after so much skepticism that management could not back up their claims through the winter and spring months. Though I am no2 concerned that euphoria could get so high any small setback could have skeptics coming out of dark corners and drag the stock back down.


20% of shares are short, as of most recent report on Yahoo Finance…

Kudos to Chris on this one. He pretty much nailed the numbers and his crystal ball predicted managements guidance raises almost perfectly. Bravo, golf clap, roar, etc…
