Shorts lick their wounds in two healthcare stocks

by Ted Dixon

Short sellers reduced their positions in two healthcare stocks which have shown up positively on INK screens over the past month. On February 22nd, we wrote that shorts had boosted their bets against Khiron Life Sciences (Mostly Sunny; KHRN) right before the stock soared to new all-time highs. According to the latest IIROC short report released March 21st, those bets have fallen dramatically.

Short positions have dropped by almost 1.5 million shares over the past month
