Looking at the Short Squeeze in DryShips

Added on by C. Maoxian.

The notorious $DRYS did yet another reverse split on Friday, July 21 (this one 1:7). I've been avoiding shorting this stock because I've been fearing a squeeze, which would happen the moment I got short, thinks Mr. Paranoid. I hadn't thrown in the towel and finally shorted it, but there was a wicked short squeeze last Friday. I didn't make a dime off of this expected squeeze, mainly because I was too busy tweeting about it instead of playing it.

My Twitter addiction costs me so many opportunities, and I have to work on curbing my need to be publicly "right." I really need to force myself to shut off Twitter during market hours ... I just have to go cold turkey. Catching this one trade could have made my week / month / year!
