significant decrease in $SMSI short interest

Announcements. Comments Off on significant decrease in $SMSI short interest

There has been a 35% decrease in $SMSI short interest reported during the final 2 weeks of 2011. 1.1 million shares were covered during this time to bring the value as of Dec. 30th to 2.1 million. This leads us to the obvious question, “Why were short sellers leaving the trade during a time in which tax loss selling is more the norm?”
