How desperate are the shorts in Gannett?

Did anyone watch yesterday's late afterhours action in Gannett? Where these shortsellers sell shares from one buddy's account to another to get a low afterhours print?

To supposedly make market players think there is some news that they have missed?

So now, I need to bring it up, because when you play games like this, it means you are desperate.

The stock closed at 10, yet these jokers made these prints to make it look like the afterhours closing price was $9.27.


18:59 $ 9.27 200
18:59 $ 9.27 200
18:59 $ 9.32 1,000
18:32 $ 9.225 100
18:32 $ 9.235 100
18:32 $ 9.22 200
18:32 $ 9.20 200
18:32 $ 9.21 200
18:31 $ 9.24 200
18:31 $ 9.235 100
18:31 $ 9.26 200
18:30 $ 9.27 200
18:30 $ 9.26 600
18:30 $ 9.22 100
18:30 $ 9.22 300
18:30 $ 9.23 100
18:30 $ 9.24 100
18:30 $ 9.24 300
18:02 $ 9.83 100

18:02 $ 9.82 200
18:02 $ 9.84 100



Do you want to know how desperate the shorts are in Gannett? Just check the short interest. Over 44 million shares.

How tight then, is the noose getting on them, when they have to resort to games like this?
