This has never happened to CYTX in the past - what is your interpretation?

Perhaps they’ve decided that it’s time to pull the plug now that Cytori has changed its focus.

So you are saying the Shorts (who are generally more astute than longs) view it as a positive for the stock?:cool:

Well, I’m not as knowledgeable as Hedge and WST on this stuff Rod but simple logic says the shorts are departing Dodge for some reason and in view of recent price/volume action, someone is buying in.
Based on the 3/29 date, shorts bailed prior to the CC, not suppose to get insider info but we all know this kind of stuff happens all the time leaving the retail guys at a disadvantage.

B-7, my question was a bit disingenuous - I know the answer - I just wanted your take on it - however, not certain about your insider info comment - HF and WST will not answer the question because there is no way to give it a negative spin.

***HF and WST will not answer the question because there is no way to give it a negative spin.***
Oh contraire.
What if the timing corresponds with what someone wanted for some time and that was finally accomplished ?


Of course we will never know the REAL reason.

"with what someone wanted for some time" - first of all, there were many shorts, but let's say that they all had the same "want" - what would that "want" have been - exiting the costly Cell Therapy business? - Avoiding BK? - any thoughts?

Short interest falls further still to 4/15/2019
21,482 shares short.
I still say this represents a MISSION ACCOMPLISHED event and also still begs to ask who was the man behind the curtain ?

My guess, the guys who bought out the goods for a song.

B-7 and HF are only partially correct on the cause of the short interest free-fall - yes, it had to with the sale of the Cell Therapy business, but the two individuals involved were not the owners of the short interest - rather, the sale eliminated the threat of BK and at .30 per share there was not enough downside (versus upside risk) for the independent shorts to maintain their position.

Smart shorts probably bidding their time until the next RS to give them some working room to knock it back down again.
Even if they are successful with the pharm stuff, long term holders here will most likely never recoup the losses with the number of RS.

Yep, with basically half of the cash from recent "reverse merger" activity going out the door to Oxford...it seems to have attracted a few new shorts. Big test comes when they try for more cash.
