so on Oct 1,2012, MS sold all but 800 K shares of DECK (from 2.1M shares) - see sec.gov /Archives/edgar/data/895421/000089542112000497/deckersoutdoorcorp.txt
Then on DEC 7,2012 MS reported that it owned only 800K shares of DECK
Now today MS is reporting that it has 1.94M shares of DECK
In essence they purchased all the shares they disposed off of. I'd be worried if I were short.
Any event causing a surge in buying is real trouble for the shorts. As of 1/15/13 the short interest is 42.61% according to TD Ameritrade. The percentage held by institutions is 112.97%. Not a typo..112.97%. In short (no pun intended) the shorts have no place to buy shares if a squeeze starts. Good luck to all.
Agreed. the question of the squeeze is no longer if, but when..a good thing for DECK to do now is to pre-report with excellent earning and burn them once and for all. I still don't understand why it takes them more than a month and a half to report the last quarter numbers.
