Seems another ~1.95 million shares were shorted during the first half of May 2016.......and this includes (and ends with) the Thursday and Friday of HIMX's CC & earnings release.
This is also around 8.5 million more shorts in two months (since mid-March 2016).
Jose: Note how these do not agree with the daily data you post. I think you are getting these from the shortstockvolume website which I also look at and have wondered why these do not agree much. I am not being critical......just pointing out that the daily short volume is never complete (generally missing ~30+% of volume) and don't correlate.
Today's rally is being talked about as a short covering rally..........so it will be interesting if any HIMX shorts covered today (will find out around 6/10/16).
