Hello writer – thank you for clearly pointing out what the tens of thousands of us understand to be true – fundamentally, the value is significantly weighed down by funds and market makers shorting this stock (market conditions aside). In our opinion, these actions are illegal and should draw the attention of the SEC in a more targeted manner. We (the 46,000 person strong CLOV Reddit Army) are excited to hold this stock long term, regardless of these frivolous actions by market makers.
