Read and study how REIT companies financials should be computed and interpreted.
The high short position has been there for many years.
Shorts often hedge their short position by purchasing uncovered calls.
Makes little sense unless you trade options.
My earnings estimate is $1.57815 and over $6.15 for the year.
Makes CALM stock worth about $58 and the dividend will be added benefit.
Short interest peaks when stocks bottom.
I'm watching to see if short interest continues to increase.
And that 4167% does not include dividends!
Shorts have been after this stock since it listed 18 or 19 years ago, a period during which CALM stock rose 4167%. Don't worry. Be happy you found this stock for long term.
