The most recent short interest data has been released by the NASDAQ for the 03/28/2013 settlement date, which shows a 721,561 share decrease in total short interest for Charter Communications Inc CHTR, to 4,241,833, a decrease of 14.54% since 03/15/2013. Total short interest is just one way to look at short data; another metric that we here at Dividend Channel find particularly useful is the "days to cover" metric because it considers both the total shares short and the average daily volume of shares traded.
According to the ETF Finder at ETF Channel, CHTR makes up 3.17% of the Dynamic Media Portfolio ETF (PBS) which is higher by about 2.1% on the day Wednesday. In afternoon trading Wednesday, CHTR was off about 0.2% on the day.
