There has been a short attack on this stock since early Sept 2013. I have posted several times about this. At the 8/30 reporting date there were 26.9M shares short. IMO, anything reported higher than about 30.7M will prove that the recent drop was shorts piling on (probably AND tax selling). There is some (albeit small) value in waiting until the new year before saying/releasing anyhing... could confirm if the sell off was tax selling.
What I am most interested in seeing when the shorts will start to cover or otherwise closeout out their gains from the short attack. I firmly believe that Jan will be a VERY interesting and telling month in a positive way price wise. Shall see.
