u don't understand shorting stocks. hedge funds do shorts as a way to protect their longs, as well in hopes they go down.. If there are 100 shares in the float and someone shorts 25 of them there are 125 shares in the float. But sgen does look like a winner so I too, would hang onto that stock.
(they borrow the 25 shares, so u still own your shares and they own the borrowed shares) .
My goodness gidillybeepers w-j that is odd indeed. But it is probably just a symptom of timing when the data are gathered. Or it may have to do with the shorting of shares too. On the same hand, how does someone short shares that do not exist, or naked shorting too. It is a rigged, stacked deck for sure too!
hmm, so this would indicate to me that there are virtually no free shares available to trade. That's probably why the price is rising so dramatically. I guess I'll hold on to my last few shares of SGEN.
