Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc (NASDAQ:HMNY) investors are deciding they want to play with fire, or at least that is how infamous short-seller Andrew Left of Citron Research must view today’s massive stock gains following his ominous tweet: “retail investors are warned” of an impending titanic trajectory that could send shares high-tailing it back to $20. However, with shares vaulting up almost 30% today, the Street is not taking heed of Left’s cautionary words on Twitter: “You might like product but $1+bill it isn’t. Giving away $1 for .90 no biz.”¬†HMNY has a 1-year high of $38.86 and a 1-year low of $2.20. The stock’s 50-day moving average is $7.12 and its 200-day moving average is $3.78.

Thanks to an acquired lion’s share position in up-and-coming Netflix sister company (pioneered by Mitch-Lowe, who co-founded the original video streaming giant) called MoviePass, where subscribers shell out just under $10 a month to gain access into a pass per day to 91% of domestic movie theaters, HMNY stock has ballooned at a headlong 1005% rise. Clearly, investors recognize a moneymaker proposition when they see one, and not even Left’s fear-mongering bearish advice can shake this Wall Street bull of the day’s ultrasonic momentum that just keeps flying higher.

On the ratings front, Maxim Group analyst Brian Kinstlinger assigned a Buy rating on HMNY, with a price target of $20, in a report issued on October 2. According to TipRanks.com, Kinstlinger has a yearly average return of 6.8%, a 58% success rate, and is ranked #911 out of 4696 analysts.
