Briefing.com Note: We find it quite interesting that the CEO is in the market purchasing shares given his comments on the last conference call suggesting that he was expecting a big short-squeeze in the stock b/c the shorts don't have nearly enough shares to make the math work.

Live In Play 03-Aug-05 12:21 OSTK Overstock.com: CEO closing the call focusing on the short sellers (42.03 -1.82) -Update- CEO says knows that he and his father own about 7.5 mln shares and others in his family own about 1.0-1.4 mln shares (his best guess). Look at top 10 institutional holders show 7.6 mln shares held. If you look at other friends (people CEO knows), a reasonable est is about 1 mln or so. Says all together talking about 18 mln shares. CEO says that what this means is that there are about 1.9 mln shares that you can own (short), but if you look at what people think they can own it is about 9-10 mln shares. Briefing.com Note: Though the CEO won't admit it, he seems to be implying that a big short-squeeze may be coming once the shorts start covering.
