On the interview Lemelson also commmented:

“…we talked about Netflex (NASDAQ: NFLX), we talked about Skechers (NYSE: SKX), those are companies that have wild valuations, any bump in the road and the optimism relating to the issue will affect their popularity and I think they will have a precipitous fall.”

Lemelson also told Benzinga:

“We still think it’s radically overpriced. We think it’s a fad frankly and we keep shorting it. We did increase our short, our average short price was around $132… we’re going to keep shorting it.”
