Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) Institutional Ownership & Holdings - NASDAQ.com
Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) Short Interest - NASDAQ.com
NFLX Key Statistics | Netflix, Inc. Stock - Yahoo! Canada Finance
Shares outstanding is 55.59m, the float is 48.77m
Institutional ownership is 87.64% of shares outstandling: 48,718,325
Insider ownership is 12.93%: 7,187,787
Short interest as of 1/15/13 was 10,117,386
Judging from the above, insider ownership is entirely the difference between shares outstanding and the float, and is all shares likely not available for sale at this time. If reported institutional ownership is added to reported insider ownership, we're over 100%. So where did 10m shares short come from?
I hadn't been watching Netflix, but looking at the reported numbers I can see where they'd be looking at a VW-style squeeze. The stock structure almost seems designed for it.

Hmm...I just went into mine (with Scotia iTrade) and modified my sell to 2013/02/26...still at 105.00..(limit) Guess they all have their own rules. I am not expecting it to hit...more for fun than anything, but at least the shorts wont get them....
If they do I guess I owe SuperFly a used car of his colour choice

I'm just wondering, assuming the stock doesn't hit your limit price. Does it matter if you set your limit at $35 or $100?
No...if it doesn't hit you keep your stock, just keeps it from being available for shorts...if a squeeze hits hard 35 may/may not be high enough. I just like the 105.00 cuz it makes me laugh…some fellow (short RIM)…sitting in his office looking to see what the likely cover is going to cost him see’s my block at that price…haha…makes me laugh typing it…should be a new BlackBerry commercial a-la-Mastercard…Priceless.

The secret to options:
1) Learn the basics of what they are. Leveraged securities.
2) Ignore all the "techniques" that are discussed.
3) Learn about value investing. When a stock is grossly undervalued or overvalued, get options cheap.
People that bought long dated call options when RIMM was at $8 are the ones that made out. Overall, I am up 1000% on my basket of RIMM securities. Only 20% of the cash I put in was actual stock.
Options are a value investors dream. Thing is, if you don't know what the underlying company is worth, you might as well go to the casino and invest there.

This is just a followup from my previous post on ownership/short interest in NetFlix, but using numbers for RIMM. The numbers source is from Yahoo finance and the NASDAQ, which may or may not be accurate and up to date.
RIMM Key Statistics | Research In Motion Limited Stock - Yahoo! Finance
Research in Motion Limited (RIMM) Ownership Summary - NASDAQ.com
Shares Outstanding: 514.84m
Difference between shares outstanding and float: 30m
Insiders: 15.01% of shares outstanding: 77.28m
Institutions: 56.79% of shares outstanding: 297,665,666
So starting from the float of 484.84, if we remove the insider portion (77.28m-30m), and institutional holdings (297m), we're left with 140.56m shares.
Short interest as of 1/15/13 was 135m shares. That's a huge number of shares, representing almost half of the institutional holdings. I don't think it's a covered short. I'm also getting very inclined to think it's going to take margin calls before people start covering, their losses are getting bad enough that they can't do anything but hope the price falls: If they do cover, their losses will be even worse.

Research In Motion Limited (USA)(NASDAQ:RIMM), just two days away from unveiling its new Blackberry 10 OS, plans to introduce lower price tiers for apps in Blackberry World, starting with the British pound and Euro.
In the United Kingdom the lowest level will be 0.75 pounds, down from 1 pound. In terms of the Euro, prices will vary from country to country but reports say that apps as low as 0.75 euro on the Spanish site have been found.
According to RIM, the tweak takes currency exchange rates and VAT requirements into account, and is an effort to gain a competitive edge and catch the eyes of consumers.
The idea is for the apps to have a wider appeal and for those who are looking to save their coins. The price adjustments are automatic depending on which country the user resides in.
I clipped this from some website. good news is that it looks like rim will try to go head to head with the other ecosystem on app price!
