Carillion has "no future" is just scaremongering.

Press comment states that Carillion was (and is) the most shorted stock in the FTSE. As it happens, I know that the FCA has some Short Selling Regulations and shorting has to be disclosed.

I've found you this website that uses the FCA data, and tells you which shares are being shorted
http://shorttracker.co.uk/

I'm not a member of the investment club. I'm just trying to be helpful here. But, for example, I'd suggest you don't buy any shares in Ocado. If there's a lot of people out there who think a company's share price is overvalued, it's a good idea to stay away from it, unless you really know something. Sometimes the shorters are bang on. As they were with Carillion.

Underfog tip for members of the imutual Cashback Investment Club.
The next club valuation will see the unit price fall dramatically. Now would be a good time to add funds in order to max out any future gains.

Dead cat bounce is due to them being awarded the HS2 rail link work.
