One of my old favorite shorts, Plug Power , continues to lose power. Down another -$3/share (-9%). Crickets from the PLUG bulls. Same old same old.

Tweet of the Day (Part Trois)

If I was currently in the game I would still be short Plug Power (it dropped another -$3/share yesterday): There will be those who say Archegos was a one-off, but there are any number of crowd-favorite stocks that show similar patterns of blow-off t...
