A company that I own stock in, Radian Group Inc., NYSE _ RDN, has been hammered to unprecedented lows. I believe the extremely low price per share has occured, in part, due to illegal naked short selling of the stock. The parties that participate in naked short selling must be stopped. The mortgage insurance industry is under extreme pressure and yet has a vital role in the recovery of the current housing crisis. I implore you to simply enforce the SEC rule on naked short selling and please review RDN specifically. Please include the martgage insurance companies in emergency order short sales.
