The following Charles Schwab (SCHW) conference call took place on February 12, 2015, 11:30 AM ET. This is a transcript of that earnings call:
2/16/15 4:32PM
The most recent short interest data has been released by the NASDAQ for the 01/30/2015 settlement date, and we here at Dividend Channel like to sift through this fresh data and order the underlying components of the S&P 500 by "days to cover." There are a number of ways to look at short data, for example the total number of shares short; but one metric that we find particularly useful is the "days to cover" metric because it considers both the total shares short and the average daily volume of shares typically traded. The number of shares short is then compared to the average daily volume, in order to calculate the total number of trading days it would take to close out all of the open short positions if every share traded represented a short position being closed.

Looking today at week-over-week shares outstanding changes among the universe of ETFs covered at ETF Channel, one standout is the WisdomTree Equity Income Fund where we have detected an approximate $105.6 million dollar inflow -- that's a 10.0% increase week over week in outstanding units (from 17,500,000 to 19,250,000). Among the largest underlying components of DHS, in trading today AT&T Inc is up about 0.1%, Lockheed Martin Corp.
