EADS short sales

A while back we published the short stock sales for Boeing. We’ve been trying to find short sales for EADS and the best we could do is find, through one of the US aerospace analysts, the EADS short sales in the USA, where the stock is traded Over The Counter (OTC).

The problem is that there are only an average of 230 trades per day, a volume that is so small as to be almost meaningless. Our analyst friend could not find any data in France about EADS short sales, but neither he nor we know if this is a function that the US data base used doesn’t find it or if by regulation this doesn’t have to be disclosed. If there are any Europeans who can fund the EADS short sales in France, Germany or any other market in which EADS stock is heavily traded, please send us the data on an Excel spreadsheet.

Meanwhile, here is the short sales record on the OTC market. Because the average daily trade is so small, the short interest ratios are huge.
