  • I saw that, in a no-news month, at that... I may be wrong, but I think I may be somewhat responsible for this massive jump in shares shorted.

    here's how: In May we signed a contract to buy a really nice property, with a firm closing date of July 11. My intention was to sell some of my NSTG to buy the property, however I kept postponing the sale, waiting for some rally on the Celgene news. Didn't work out, so on July 5 and 6th I needed to sell or we would have lost the property and the deposit. I am not talking massive amounts, but with a thinly-traded stock some 20,000 offered at market can really move the price...

    It was unpleasant to see how my selling precipitated a dump, but also somewhat amusing. Maybe some shorters saw my somewhat panicked selling and decided that some smart money is dumping stock, and decided to pound on it. Or may it was sensed by a computer trading program. The point is, I have the sale receipts to show that I initiated the stock decline... from there, who knows what happened...

    Yes, you're correct. Here's to illustrate your point:

    All price movement lately is sector specific. Over the long term, NSTG should outperform FLDM, because it has higher organic growth and lower P/S valuation. FLDM growth is due to acquisition, which diluted the share count. I haven't sold yet, either.

    Sentiment: Buy
