Either someone shorting this rise or part of the game but very few shares left for shorting at Interactive Brokers.

My guess is this is well practiced and for those playing, there is little real risk.

My guess is that because of the low SP and market cap (which after the debt is nothing), that most brokerage firms are not allowing any shorting by customers (retail or institutional) - probably only M/M's involved. JMO.

I cannot, and I am quite sure that you cannot short CYTX in your account, and you are a "hedgefund". - LOL.

"Its not important that I succeed, all others must fail."

While there are various versions to the above statement and also attributed to several sources its enough to understand that we matter little to the real goals of others. I do not know why you cannot short this if you chose to do so but rest assured others can.

Most retail investors cannot short a stock under $1 at most brokerage houses - the other serious issues re CYTX (including debt exceeding mkt. cap) probably prevent most institutions from doing so as well - isn't it interesting that the short interest of 1.48 million shares is shown as unchanged for the month by Yahoo - stock went below $1 on 7/24.

Although a little dated....Sure, what ever was covered was quickly reshorted.
There was no fear to book a profit at the time that data was collected.

In other news, with a 75 million cap on shares...there is no way then can let it go below $0.30 and get their $10 million raise. Whomever runs this offering had to do something.
Knowing these figures, easy trading for some. I still say early to read anything positive longer term just because CYTX is playing its historical movements.

HF, what does "although a little dated mean"?

Also what can this quote possibly mean: " I still say early to read anything positive longer term just because CYTX is playing its historical movements"?????

I have an answer to my first question - Yahoo was comparing 7/15 to 7/31 - 8/15 short interest increased a measly 12,000 shares to 1.6 million from 1.48 million.

Rodney- do not under-estimate IB. They are by far the most sophisticated broker worldwide. Fully computerized and checking real-time. As a customer one can trade on every major stock market globally.

Cytori is also listed in Germany- actually I also have a German broker (besides IB) where I also keep some CYTX stock and it is well-known that we trade 6 hours ahead of you.

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:

Fas, okay I agree with your second paragraph re time differential, but my point is that short-selling imo is playing very little into CYTX stock movements not only currently, but during the past few months.

Again no shares for shorting (IB)...something like 30K at the start of the day.
Very low volume early picked up nicely in what appears to be pressure from at least in part shorting and then defense of $0.40 so the RO gets done next month.
Volume seems to have slowed again as I guess the pro-Cytori powers are comfortable with a $0.41 or above PPS.
I assume we get a official announcement by the end of the week on the Q3 call date and time.
