In my opinion only, here is the proof and here is the smoking gun. They shorted this by 53% today. Close to 12 million shares were shorted today. There is a free website I use called shortanalytics. It is available on the web, just log in and type AMD it will give you all data with charts. That is your smoking gun. You wil get all of your information that way on shorts, longs and total volume for several weeks. The stock has been very heavily shorted during the last four weeks.
masterwallstreet,I just checked the short analytics site and the volume showing for today is "22443889" under Total volume....however AMD traded a volume of 42.1 million today...any idea of the discrepancy? or am I reading the chart wrong.
In my opinion only, I saw the same thing 22 million shares when the volume was 42 million shares. I have no idea what is going on. My best guess is that someone is buying shares that are not being recorded. I know this data goes from 9:30 to 4:00 so pre-market and after-market data might not be included. I do not think pre-market and after-market were that high. My best guess is someone is buying unrecorded shares. This won't be recorded until they file with the SEC.
In my opinion only, I have been following this stock for a long time. In the last four weeks they have been heavily shoring this stock. My best guess is between 140 or 180 million shares that need to be covered. There is possibly a good reaso hy they are shorting this so much. Usually before a takeover they try to pull the price low before they buy it. That is another possibility that might be going on right now.
