The big sellers from the end of quarter and sell the news crowd are gone.
MM's picking off straglers and the machines are swaping among themselves.
New and returning smart money is trying to get in. The reality is there are few shares to be had.
A contrary view--- The options market is projecting a near decline. The largest volume is Oct 20 puts @ $ 2.50, correspondingly Oct 20 calls, also high volume are $ 5.00. With stock price currently at $ 4.12 this suggests many of these larger investors believe that the near term upside is $ .88 and the near term downside is $ 2.50. This strongly suggests that they believe that the risk reward short term is heavily weighted to the shares strongly declining.
Hedge nobody that I know that is buying is having any problems buying shares or getting it at the price they want. Volume is slowing down so I'm not really getting your post. things seem to have returned to Cytori normal as we wait for a promised deal that will add some sash to the till. Was supposed to happen end thrid quarter but we know it did not. it was a definite promise to happen before the end of the year. That said if you look at SRPT you can see what can happen in a day. We should only be so lucky.
