As of December 14th there were 28.34M shares shorted. This represents 21.40% of the float. In other words 1 in every 5 shares of MUX not controlled by insiders or institutions is currently being shorted. Any positive announcement has these guys in a panic to cover.
What are you talking about? There is plenty of good new released and they still have a large short base. Investors that position themselves short at that rate see problems. The manipulation in the PM market is going to continue so shorts have a lot better chance to gain. Great stock to trade, but LTI...I think not!!!
Not at all. I am saying that as per Yahoo on December 31st, the short shares represented 21.40 % of the float. You can read that just by clicking on Key Statistics in the MUX yahoo page. All you have to do is read.
