Approach your problem from the right end and begin with the answers. Then one day, perhaps you will find the final question..

I wonder how much of today's volume was underwriters frantically punching the "BUY" button?I was wondering about the same thing, there was huge bid size at 38.00 during whole day, I have a strong feeling they pushed up the price around the close.

Haha, true, I wonder at the end of the day how much the underwriters are holding of the whole float?It's almost under initial offer in after hours trading.

Underwriters had to buy like crazy last hour into the close -- judging by the volume traded they might be sitting on smth like a 100 mil shares. People will be likely shorting into this big time on Monday.

People will be likely shorting into this big time on Monday.It's hard to get a locate on this beast, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan and Goldman are among underwriters, I don't think they can even borrow their shares.

right. I am thinking underwriters will limit the borrow -- still i heard some big i-bank was providing borrow today. All retail brokers and those who didn't have stabilizing bids will do too, i assume.
