I hope to use this thread to update all future short interest listings

For those interested, we added about 341K shares...I guess the pop into the $0.50's was just too irresistible...LOL

7/31/2015.... 6,891,049

Another 507K shares shorted...seems someone isn't afraid to this penny even here

My guess is someone has that 50 million market cap as a target and they want below there...let alone you know the second close was going to be motivation for fun and games.

We may need another Sabby miracle...LOL

8/14/2015.... 7,398,422 shares short

I just didn't want you to be stuck at that number... anyway, if the drop is as bad as I think, then shorting now wouldn't be that bad... :whistle:

Board moderator and Site-owner. I still regret the day I started analysing the prospects of MacroPore (now Cytori) back in 2004- a left-over from the tech-bubble at that time from the century change in my portfolio- and became addicted to Cytori´s fat cell technology. :cry:

Mr Hedge

I have been puzzled by CYTXer's on and off appearance. Based on what he says he appears to be playing short currently (but he appeared to play long in the past). He is waiting patiently on the side till CYTX is up again (January Effect) and short the hell out of this poor orphan again, till it is in the gutter again. Just my thought on this man, who can very well be the "Chuck", "James Dean" or even our beloved Saad.

Mr. Hedge, does it mean in the second half of September, someone bought a lot of cheap shares and use short position to hedge against the down risk? During the first half of September, the short position went down sharply: does it mean someone sold out and did not need the hedge?

Or, is it because there was a biotech meltdown in the second half of September ? I have noticed a big rise in short position in many other biotechs.

You cant hold both a long and short position at the same time in a particular security so such hedging usually envolves options but warrants can also serve as a hedge. Note, not everyone plays by the same rules.
As far as the short position related to the recent pressure in the biotech sector....CYTX isn't in any of the major biotech averages and already has a rock bottom valuation but with machines running so much of trading today I don't think we can rule anything out for certain. IMHO, just as likely due to the pop in the PPS earlier in September.

At least it seems they stopped the shorting since beginning of October with the share price constantly going up (from 0.32 to 0.42... :puke: )... not sure if they are also covering already... might also push it down again before starting to do that... :KO:

CYTX seems to be trending down (again lately). It seems to be me that it may due to pending Q earning call in less than 2 weeks. (I think CYTX always goes down around earning time, particularly after the CC: good news is always not good enough.)

What good news do you refer to. There has not been good news in 5 years i have been holding this POS. At .38 Hedrik should be embarrassed
to even hold a conference call. :puke:
