First, we'd like to pat ourselves on the back a little.

While most of the US daytrading class is now in a furore over the "discovery" that most shorted stocks tend to outperform - to put it mildly - when a bunch of autists rams illiquid, heavily shorted names up the collective behind of hedge funds which "legally" collude during idea dinners to put on a basket of shorts, hence why stocks like GME can end up with a synthetic short that is higher than the entire float, none of this should be news to regular readers, as the theme of going long the most shorted names is one we first presented and discussed as far back as 2013:

We then reiterated this strategy in 2014...

Sounds like a trap for inexperienced investors to me.

(Edit) I tried playing options once when I used to have a handle on the market years ago. I lost my ass.

The markets are so irrational now, I can't see the forest for the trees. The last good investment I made was physical PMs around 2009, I think. Never been out of the money, but the return has probably only kept up with inflation, maybe a little better.
