My bet is that we do not see a material change in position. I suspect the run to $27 was driven by short covering but I think they quickly re-established their positions.
In my opinion the short interest figures should be published daily. I cannot see any technological reason to prevent it. It would add additional transparency to the market that is currently missing. Its not like this needs to be computed by hand or something.
Down about 280,000 shares to 6,335,008 held short. That is about what I would have expected. It wouldn't have surprised me if the short position was up or down slightly but there was definitely NOT a major jump in position despite the significant volatility over the past two months.
The technical factors will probably drive the stock in the near term unless we get some addition news / orders. I am still inclined to see the large short position as a slightly bullish indicator. Additional good news would send the shorts scrambling to escape.
