    Let me make it easier for you. 2MM new short interest. Retail or institutional?

    Would like to answer your question about the increased short interest. But first I would like to know who you think owns the shares and the short short position of the increase?

    The losses to retail shorts is massive

    Before I answer your question, who do you think has those 2MM shares? Those 2MM more short shares???

    Uninformed retail shorts (like s,platuim) gets into a short by not doing enough DD or because he got #$%$ that OPK pulled a trial from him. What ever the reason he's thinking, hey 40MM other shares are short, must be right. He just does not understand market dynamics.

    Case in point. Have a look at all the 3D printer stocks Heavily shorted. And the squeeze is on. And hedge funds are making a killing on them. So many people got caught in the short hype because the 3D printer was so much in the news.

    Shorting a stock is not for people like s.platium. In his case, if he is who everyone says he is, has a little money to lose. But if he continues to try and short stocks with his limited knowledge and his "can;t be wrong" attitude, eventually it will get to his bottom line.

    Now I could care less about him, but some may want to learn from others. This is why I bring it up.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • They have been short since $5.00. They have been paying 4-8% margin interest. They got caught up in a short pump created by the hedge funds that actually wanted the price LOWER before they shorted. And now they are getting margin calls daily.. Most will try and fight it off thinking they are still right. They are not disciplined investors or they would have never found themselves in this spot.

    Longs, as you know nothing runs this hard this fast without a huge buyer making it happen. This is not retail. So something has to be going on. Of course its all speculation but has to be some fuel somewhere to keep this fire going.

    My sources say that Frost wants the company. But it might be getting away from him because of this run up. He wants it at $19. If the price gets anywhere near $15 I don't think the board can take $19,

    One thing is for sure, we are involved with something very special.

    Based on the RSI of OPK

    Because you have relied too heavily on the one indicator, RSI, you have missed a nice move. It's no that accurate and never works during the momentum phase of a chart. And OPK is certainly gaining momentum

    Will OPK at some point see a pullback? Sure, but trying to time it is going to be tough like you have discovered,

    I DID NOT SAY THEY WERE SHORT. They hod shares short but are net LONG!! And How many options are outstanding has nothing to do with anything. They trade options. Not hold then for any specified period of time.

    Hedge funds make money mostly by hedging. Not by owning or shorting shares.

    And because Frost has never taken a company public in past does not mean he won't in the future. He also has never bought shares like this. When I ask wall street insiders that follow Frost, over half think he will take it over. Heck at the rate he is buying he will have it done in a few short years. But he wants it sooner.

    My gues is Frost has filed a form 10b-5 thats shows a pre-determined buy schedule. He is buying the company share by share to take it private. There will never be a question of insider trading with this form on file. He is getting great value as the hedge funds are holding 90% of the short shares and usung options to made lots of money long.

    OPK Top Institutional Holders

    There is a hedge fund that has 14MM shares short. They are pretty darn smart as well. The fund made its investors close to a 55% return last year. So don't compare a hedge fun (or mutual fund) to retail shorts or longs.

    By the way, that hedge fund has been net long OPK with options for 3 years. They want all the short shares so they can go long options. A very important strategy for hedge funds.

    A 500K order got absorbed really fast. Now there are buyers stacking up. Had that one seller not stepped in, this would be over $11.

    New position? LOL What happened to the last one? Let me guess, you made money on the trade lol. Ya know gold, you are not fooling anyone. You lost your #$%$ and now your #$%$. Buy why? You made a mistake in a trade. Big deal. Stop taking this so personal. Its a trade. No one is right all the time. To be good at this game you have to stop with the he said. she said thing. Focus on what makes you money. Not what other do, Spend more time doing DD and not bashing longs or shorts. It means nothing. Try and focus man. Really.

  • Getting very hard to short retail. Thats not all good news for longs.

    I cant speak for fdaman but I can tell you that ETRADE sent me a letter asking for me to release my shares back to them and would credit my account 4% APR. I know that Ameritrade has no shares to short and will not allow ANY shorting. ETRADE requires anyone shorting to sign an agreement allowing them to charge you 4% APR just to borrow the shares. So they are in danger of not meeting the requirements of delivering shares as required.

    I don't think there will be a squeeze because the majority of the shorts shares are held by hedge funds who are net long. The retail shorts are covering with losses and only a few stupid short investors remain. You know who they are!

    Only in most margin accounts do you have to take possession of shares you dont want lent out. However, in many, if not most cash accounts, you prob signed an agreement that says they are allowed to lend your shares even in a cash account. You have to specifically ask for and sign the agreement that disallows them from lending your shares in cash account

    $18, It only makes sense. I'm not happy but will take it. My average is 5ish and own a bunch. Good run,. Wanted to see it through to $30 or so.
