NYSE short interest down 0.5 pct in late October

NEW YORK, Nov 9 (Reuters) - Short interest on the New York Stock Exchange fell 0.5 percent in the second half of October, the exchange said on Friday.

Through Oct. 31, short interest dipped to 13.297 billion shares from 13.357 billion shares as of Oct. 15.

Investors who sell securities short seek to profit from a decline in stock prices. Short-sellers borrow shares and then sell them in hope of buying them back at a cheaper price, pocketing the difference.
