These fund numbers have to have the short side a little shaky.
The retail investor is the least of their worries, as any little dips will be met with increased buying by the big boys. and shorts will have to find shares to buy. There simply cannot be that many shares available anymore
with retail locked and loaded and these major long funds heavily committed. Another day goes by and the game continues.
I fully agree that the majority of the shares are locked up tightly, either strong handed retail or institutions. That is part of the reason for the low volume lately. Less and less of the float is out there trading.
And if the market rejects belviq once it becomes available, (and only time will tell, about 6-12months) then what? What do you think the institutions and hedgies are gonna do. I wouldn't want to be the last one out the door.
