As of mid 11/13 there were 7,329,500 short shares, 9.84% of float. This will provide upward momentum when covered. This is assuming they will have the opportunity. If the company is MDXG is sold, I guess they wouldn't have the chance.
Doc(s) I too have observed the short interest increase.
Interestingly all happening at prices around 5.4 with now 25 days to cover.
This is going to be either a home run or a blood bath for them
The way these market makers are playing around as gecco would say "is the illusion reality"?
I hope the shorts take it up the .........
