    Short Interest Near High for the Year

    From the NASDAQ website:
    11/30/2012 1,408,901

    The previous high for 2012 was around 1.6 million shares. Now that the float is higher and longs have been diluted, the percent of outstanding shares short is still lower. For the moment....

    I prefer to buy INSM after the shorts have taken the risk of pushing the share price lower. I will check back in February.

    • As I know you to be a tad green as an investor, you should consider the possibility that the current short position may be far lower than was the case at the last reported date - in that much of that position may have been initiated in the expectation of covering by buying the shares Ayer has recently sold.

      We won't have confirmation of that until the end of this month.
