    Short 53.5 days

    This thing has 53.5 days short. This is the highest I have ever seen in any stock. Either the results are bad and have been leaked, or the shorts are shorting this down (probably using naked shorts) and buying cheap shares as investors are scared out. I believe the results will be excellent and the shorts will have to cover. When they do, the price will pop up.

    Sentiment: Buy

    • I think this company has huge potential and the short interest to me is perplexing. But you have to remember that Charles Link sold 150,000 shares this past summer. Maybe he wanted to buy a new home, set up a trust for his kids, ect. Or maybe he saw a secondary offering coming in the distant future and wanted to cash a little out long before that happened to avoid any legal mombobumbo. A lot of shorts are counting on a seconday offering. Thats all they have to go on because the science behind this company is fantastic. The company does have a fair amount of cash on hand but having more reserves set in place well before you need them is always a smart play. I also think many more trials are going to be annouced which is fantastic but cost money. A partnership is possible and would void a secondary offering and wipe the floor with the shorts, but i like the thought of Newlink Genetics flying solo for a while. They have the science and the management, so let there be a little pain with a secondary stock offering.

      Sentiment: Hold
