    short covering analysis

    If you assume almost 100% of the incremental volume yesterday were shorts covering their positions and about $1.50 of the gain was due to new fundamentals and $1.50 due to short covering, then we can estimate the impact of the remaining 16-17MM shorts scrambling to cover. The impact of the covering diminishes as the price rises because it will attract new sellers to help them out. So the first $2MM of covering could add $1.50 per share, the next $2MM could be $1.30, etc so if $10MM of the remaining 16-17MM short covers, we could see more than a $5 per share increase FROM HERE.
