Nah. They wouldn't get hysterically bearish to match their trading positions would they?
- Citigroup's short interest went up 56% to 85 million shares from 55 MM.
- Fannie Mae's went up 110% to 50 MM from 26MM.
- Countrywide now has 131 MM shares short.
- Washington Mutual now has 91MM up from 74 MM shares.
How funny is that?
