Dr. Brett at TraderFeed shows statistically that it might not be a good idea to short a rising market.Forbes has a great article on how activist hedge fund Santa Monica Partners is going after deep value play Warwick Valley Telephone (WWVY) and other small-caps.

Please note that due to factors including low market capitalization and/or insufficient public float, we consider Warwick Valley Telephone to be a small-cap stock. You should be aware that such stocks are subject to more risk than stocks of larger companies, including greater volatility, lower liquidity and less publicly available information, and that postings such as this one can have an effect on their stock prices.
