    What does the short ratio indicate?

    Several prior postings where discussing the
    significance
    of the short ratio. According to IBD's Guide to
    High-
    Performance Investing:

    The short interest ratio is
    the ratio of the shorts to the
    total market
    value. When this value exceeds 2.5 this is a bullish
    sign for that stock.

    T-HQ's Short ratio
    is:

    Short Interest Shares Shorts as of July 8, 1998 is
    1.46M


    Short Ratio 7.86

    • Once the split occurs and the institutions start
      buying:

      There is going to be a huge short
      squeeze......

      This squeeze could easily tack on 5-10 points
      depending on
      panic buying.....

      Why someone would
      want to be short this company is beyond my
      limits
      of comprehension....

      • A high short interest ratio coupled witha strong
        corp
        fundamental will equal a squeeze that could
        launch THQ-I.
        Agree with the statement that you
        would have to be a
        idiot to short this stock BUT if
        we are right we will be
        thanking those shortees.

        Try Ginko or ALC.

        Longs usually don't
        understand shorts and vice versa. Makes the market
        interesting.

        Companies which acquire other companies
        usually experience a decline in price in the short term.
        Not always but more often than not. Then there is the
        question of the dress. A pretty good reason to be short
        anything rather than long this coming
        week.

        Personally I see this stock going up pretty soon. But it
        sure isn't a gimme IMO.
