I’m almost starting to look like a day trader… After exiting and rebuying WSP holdings previous week (way to early it seems) I covered my Textura short today after initiating the position less than two weeks ago. The reason for covering is simple: the borrowing costs are quickly going up, and I don’t like to pay a lot of money just to be able to maintain a position. It costs almost 5% annualized to borrow shares now, and this means that the position needs to generate a negative alpha of 5% just to break even. I’m not so sure of my capabilities that I want to bet on that. I prefer jumping over lower hurdles.
No position in Textura anymore
