First abbreviated – then he returned
Larson says he cut Atlantic Sapphire ahead of Thursday’s announcement, meaning there was a bet that stock prices would fall. He says this is his third attempt after failing twice before doing so.

– I had to subscribe to this issue to cover the short film, says Larson.
He believes the stock will rise, so he had to buy the shares to make up for the loss from the bet that the stock would fall.

Report all All parameters missed
The recent rise in share prices comes on the heels of a sharp fall in the Atlantic sapphire on the Oslo Stock Exchange earlier this year. Prices have fallen 18 percent since the beginning of the year.
Investors were particularly angry after Atlantic Sapphire released its annual report and an update in the first quarter of April. The next day the stock fell 22 percent.
The company had a pre-tax profit of minus $ 55.2 million in 2020, compared to a pre-tax profit of minus $ 13.2 million in 2019.
Fearley analyst Nils Thomsen thought the annual report “missed all parameters” and that first-quarter figures were weak.
Thompson said $ 50-100 million in capital demand is expected for the second phase of Miami’s growth in 2020, as a result of higher costs and lower liquidity from operations.
Earlier, in March of this year, the stock price plummeted after a fault at a plant in Miami, which led to the death of the fish.
