if you read message boards for stockholders(finance.yahoo, for example), I think you'll find that "naked shorting" and "taking a stock down" is a widly known, common technique, usually ascribed to hedge funds, etc. the "taking down" of a stock includes bad analyst reports, bad news items(guess you already chatted with Herbie, Cramer, et al). any way it's not a secret and something the little guy can play(wait for the bottom, buy as it goes back up). hey, we all know that Wall St. is rigged, we aren't "investors", just little guy traders.
hehehehehe, good luck
