    What does the short ratio indicate?

    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.

        This may be true but this has
        been the situation since last Christmas and though the
        fundamentals get stronger, the short interest seems to be
        increasing. Unless there is any reason for the shorters to
        buy I dont see a major trigger for a short squeeze. I
        am still looking forward to the next quarter
        earnings with the new games out. If the quarter shows good
        earnings, I am hoping for some good buying from the market,
        long or short. In the meantime, the stagnant price
        movement indicates that this stock will need some sort of
        very good news to make the price move upwards. Still
        keeping my fingers crossed.

      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.
