telkonet has been on the no short list for over a year and a half and it keeps being shorted. every high volume day there is a ticket printed anywhere at 5 to 10 cents below the ask price. the stock stays flat on 5000 shares bought and drops 5 cents on 100 shares sold. this is criminal what is going on here. in december of 2007 the shorts shorted over 4 million shares in 15 days and the stock dropped 50 percent. there were only 5 million shares traded in those 15 days so you do the math. that means that about 3 million were naked. telkonet is a major victim of this crime and i hope one day it will get resolved.
