    Short Interest Update...

    Short Interest as of Jan., 31, 2013 should be available after 4pm today if I understand the distribution date correctly. Anyway, I have not been able to find the data but I do not subscribe to any services like this.

    Has anyone seen the latest data? It will still be about 2 weeks out of date but it is the latest.

    Cheers,

    Tech

    • Jan., 31, 2012 short interest in LF was 10.73 million shares, down 1.43% from Jan., 15, 2012...so basically unchanged.

      Found this on the Wall Street Journal - something I do subscribe to...

      Keep in mind the data is always 2 weeks old...

      I am kinda happy that it is not too much higher and I do figure last Thursday, Friday that some of the shorts covered during the price "shenanigans". I think that the shorts have too much power here and frankly I would rather have them on my side, that is buying to cover.

      I am in agreement with Super and hope that the trend now is back up...still a lot of that will be impacted by Tuesday's meeting, and the new toys unveiled.

      Cheers,

    • I have yet to find the new data for 1/31/13.

      Here is the link to the NASDAQ short interest report:

      It is really interesting to see that the short interest grow in the last 6 months from roughly 2 million to the present 10 million. Five times the short interest now versus this time last year. I like it. It has the ability to provide more rocket fuel if LF can continue to do what it has been doing the past few years.

      Unfortunately the margins move around when the data is added. But it gives some idea of what has been going on.
