I believe that the shorts are trapped by the low volume....not much downside at this point, and better targets out there to short, with no reason for new shorts to move in. The existing shorts can't get out with the low volume without raising the SP. IMO, sooner or later, we will begin to hear the news that we longs have all been patiently waiting for (I predict starting in late Jan., 2013)...agreements, great q4 $$$, more design wins, and maybe an infringement lawsuit?? (though not my reason for being here)
If the volume stays down, the shorts will eventually be forced to buy into the news and give us an extra boost...all imho.....monitoring the short interest with interest.
Management has alluded to a deal in the cell phone arena with the likes of nokia or motorola...ok, let's see it!! This is the deal that will light the fuse for next year.
