SHORT INTEREST IN VALLEY STOCKS

The table below lists the short interest in various Valley stocks.

In a short sale, an investor sells borrowed stock--in effect betting the price will drop--after which he can buy back the stock at a lower price and return the shares to the lender and pocket the difference. Of course, if the stock goes up in price, the short seller loses money.

Short interest is the number of shares that have been borrowed for short sales and not yet repurchased. Also listed is the average daily volume of stock traded in each company.
