It will be interesting to see what the short position is going to be on the 10th. I wonder how wise it would be to short a stock that is paying out at 10%. If there is no increase in short position one has to assume someone with a lot of stock is selling or the computers are churning back and forth.
i doubt its any short position that is hurting uan right now...only thing that i can think of is the secondary back a few weeks ago...they already guided for distributions this year so if long just hang out and add to postion down here
Shorts aren't going to want to pay the dividend. so they'll drive the price down as far as possible before the ex date, cover and take the dividend, then re-short the stock and start over for the third quarter. Icahn could stop this, but he may be the one doing the short selling.
