With regards to Ambarella, the company just blew away earnings–proving Mr. Assbahi’s ‘channel checks’ more than false, but fabrications.
In summary, I believe this gent purposely published his “hit piece” on Seeking Alpha with the intent to affect the share price, all the while holding a short position in advance of this occurrence. Or, he’s just an irresponsible hack.
Either way, I eagerly await his response to AMBA’s blow out quarter and read what he’s been up to, over the past few weeks? Did he cover his short position, after his stupid article jacked the stocks for 10%+?
The word wants to know.
Either way, I won and will be funding dinner this evening with his losses.
