according to Yahoo looks like 18,040,000 and at .25 cents per share equates to the shorts ponying up $4,510,000.00 this dividend period. An awful lot of money gambling that this thing is going to go down. I'll take their money every 1/4 of the year.
The short position increased to 23 million plus. I have to think a lot will cover before 2/3 ex-dividend date, so I bought 9K shares at 12.76 today.
