Posted this in the Yahoo Finance MB, but that is likely to be covered up by spam in a few hours.

So, here is the data, from the SEC and FINRA.

First, failures to deliver. This is from the SEC's site. Keep in mind that there is a 3 business day time shift here.

www.sec.gov/foia/docs/failsdata-archive.htm :

First half of October:
20141002|23283K105|CYTX|930|CYTORI THERAPEUTICS, INC. (DE)|0.66
20141007|23283K105|CYTX|438|CYTORI THERAPEUTICS, INC. (DE)|0.63
20141008|23283K105|CYTX|2882|CYTORI THERAPEUTICS, INC. (DE)|0.58
20141009|23283K105|CYTX|199|CYTORI THERAPEUTICS, INC. (DE)|0.49
20141010|23283K105|CYTX|5476|CYTORI THERAPEUTICS, INC. (DE)|0.48

Second half of October:
20141015|23283K105|CYTX|49280|CYTORI THERAPEUTICS, INC. (DE)|0.48

20141020|23283K105|CYTX|29658|CYTORI THERAPEUTICS, INC. (DE)|0.51
20141021|23283K105|CYTX|39579|CYTORI THERAPEUTICS, INC. (DE)|0.49
20141022|23283K105|CYTX|61176|CYTORI THERAPEUTICS, INC. (DE)|0.48

I wrote the company twice and asked them to investigate manipulation in this stock. We have been hacked and I think it comes from off shore. I strongly believe K T Lim and his crew are behind the whole thing to get back his $ 25 M.

Maybe, maybe not. Only the government can see who made the trades.... which is why I submitted a complaint to the SEC. Despite the fact that I warned about the urgency of the matter, I don't expect anything to come of it. Iunno.

Agamemmus-

Thanks for the information, but the question being- What is new about these numbers? And what do they really say?

To me- nothing really :whistle:

Those failures to deliver are BALANCES I read on the supplying page- i.e. short sales which did not deliver the borrowed shares i.e. naked shorts.

The other numbers- if you compare with other Companies on that list- CYTR, CYTK - all pretty similar- one never knows of that day short sales which number represent covers from prior days shorts. As long as the Nasdaq trades are anonymous, small and micro caps like Cytori and many others remain at the mercy of the hedge funds. :evil:

It really is all about spreadsheets it seems if you are on Nasdaq. Biotechs should therefore be funded by venture capital until they are ripe for takeover or start to make meaningful commercial revenue. :really:

Agreed with the anonymity bit. More automatic disclosure on short sales and options is necessary to weed out the many, many, many bad actors.

The massive increase in failure to deliver towards the end of October says something, I think. Let's wait for the first half of November data to come in to see if it's a pattern.

I do think that the increase in shorting in general is significant, and it is more than many other stocks. It increased on Friday, too, at least on Nasdaq -- 36% were short sales.

Just let me know if you think that the bi-monthly short shares OS is not a proper number for some reason.

Thats what we have been following now forever and gives a good indication, albeit it is reported DAMN late (i.e. 8 days after either the 15th or 30th).

All the rest always appeared like "futile" action and effort... :yawn:

It's accurate, for those dates.

The actual interest must be smaller, anyway, since trades short can be covered.

I think you should be looking at some comparable industries here as well, not just low market cap... ATHX has 2.6% short interest, but they had a 9.3% short interest just before the ulcerative colitis results (which more than halved the market cap). And we have about 10.6%...
