Freebase

  1. Shorts

    Shorts are a bifurcated garment worn by both men and women over their pelvic area, circling the waist, and covering the upper part of the legs, sometimes extending down to knee but not covering the entire length of the leg. They are called "shorts" because they are a shortened version of trousers, which cover the entire leg. Shorts are typically worn in warm weather or in an environment where comfort and airflow are more important than the protection of the legs.

    What we certainly got wrong here is that, when we first started buying, we should probably have stress-tested the balance sheet to price movements a little better, because they were carrying too much debt given the volatility, but they have gone through the right steps to basically de-risk that, and if you look at what they have done since the summer - the equity sale, the asset sales and the asset sales to come - and given that they are taking costs out the business, this company isn't going under. It isn't a black hole, which is what the shorts' story was.
