    If I shorted every company that was involved in scummy and predatory practices I'd have a very few longs to invest it.

    27% returns on equity, 8x earnings providing services to a demographic who have no means of escaping high interest loans? And it has 61% short interest?

     

    Where do I sign up to take this company private?
