Hi All,

 

Sears and Autonation take the top 2 spots.  Both are controlled by Ed Lampert and both are buying back shares like crazy.  Also both have deep pockets behind them besides Lampert.  Sears has Tisch and Berkowitz as major holders and for Autonation Bill Gates owns a ton of shares (through Cascades Investments and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation) and is also representated on the board.

I personally think whoever is shorting these shares is going to lose, but that is what makes a market!

 

Cheers

 

Michael
