See this progression of srpt short interest:
3-15 short interest: 6,794,424 shares
2-28 short interest: 4,420,198 shares
2-15 short interest: 4,124,814 shares
1-31 short interest: 3,837,253 shares
1-15 short interest : 3,485,601 shares
In the last 2 months the short interest has doubled, an increase of 3.3 million shares, with 2.4 million shares of it coming in the first 2 weeks of March!
All those shares shorted in the first 2 weeks of March are down $3 to $5/share
Add to this, the 7556 May $25 put contracts (in one day) that were initiated as a sell) ... word is this was an institution closing out an earlier put buy
Timing is everything
IF Srpt can timely come with ANY good news, this could get interesting in a big hurry
shorts just makin up numbers.. no link..figures
Simp----Where can I go to see these figures for myself.
Yet the shares continue to rise steadily despite the increase in short position.
