        I wrote a reply but I am not sure why I don't see it posted. So I will make one again.

        The days to cover don't mean a hill of beans unless there is a short squeeze. If there is a short squeeze then days to cover could be an indicator as to how high the stock may go, but that is difficult to calculate because there are a lot of other unknown variables that will dictate the squeezed price. The problem I see is that too many investors on this message board and in general seem to be invested in SKUL for the short squeeze and a short term gain. This is why the short sellers win the battles. The new investors come in and when the price is driven down, perhaps by a shot of short selling, they bolt because they don't understand what happened, didn't get their big short term gain, or both. This leads to a "long squeeze", the short sellers can cover with little problem, and the cycle happens again at some point. If you are invested in SKUL for a short squeeze then you are wasting your time and probably money because you will likely do a panic sell when the price plummets. If the short squeeze happens then gravy, but you should be invested in this stock only because you believe they have a brand that will stick and believe they are a growth story that will continue. If you are investing for any other reason then find somewhere else to invest because you will likely lose money.

      • It's just taking the average daily volume and dividing the short interest bu it. The average daily volume fluctuates of course. It is a theoretical number based on IF every share was traded to cover (which of course it is not)....
