$LK I played Green Mountain Coffee and that stretch of time where founders shares got sold off and it was on news for few days and tons of new shorts all said Green Mountain inflated sales numbers is so crooked and about to implode and said stock is worthless. What caused to big drop subsequently was the forced selling by Goldman on Green Mountain founders pledged shares against his $400M he used to piggybank his investments into Krispy Kreme donuts and other public companies. Then the atrocious price climb happened and company got bought out for $95 a share and many shorts lost their ass so bad a few had to close shop.

@Biotechster @Lionmaster @ThinBlueFlag That's funny you mentioned Influence by Cialdini. I was talking about with my friend and sent him a screen shot of it. I just ordered it off Amazon yesterday. I've read all of Robert Green's books and started reading Stoicism Philosophers: Aurelius, Cierra, etc. Now I'm really looking forward to that book
