I could only find the shares still shorted for 8/15/2016 = 23,038,062.

Do you have more up to date information?

Comparing this to shares shorted for 7/29/2016 = 24,529,686
That is roughly a 1,492,000 decrease in 12 trading days.

I estimated the shares sold in those 12 days to be 17,658,000.

1,492,000 / 17,658,000 = 8.4%

SO only 8.4% of the buying in these 12 trading day were done to by back shares shorted. The rest were purchased by investors who believe BOFI is a good value.

I don't claim to be an expert investor -- but this certainly indicates BOFI has a long way to go up!
