    inst. data and short interest


    well, the institutional data and short interest numbers are finally out.

    As it stands:

    Outstanding shares: 79m shares
    Institutional Ownership: 67m shares
    Insider holdings:1.3m - 2m shares
    Short interest: 23.2m shares

    basically, in the near term only 9m shares are available in the open market. I am sure few million of these shares are held by individual investors.

    the question is, however, where would shorts get 23 MILLION SHARES to cover their positions when only 2 to 5m available in the market.

    I am seriously concerned about the mental state of shorts.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
