As to SHO, naked shorting no doubt hurts ligitamate investors and companies themselves, as the company can be put out of business by the lowering of the share value without any reason except that a phoney party may chose to naked short the stock.
It is my opinion that the SHO does not do enough to make sure that naked shorting is stoped or at least controlled.
