I will re-iterate my previous comment. All naked short selling should be eliminated irregardless if it is a financial stock or not.

A single hedge fund can drive an individual stock down for a profit irregardless of the companies fundamentals through short selling---with or without rumors.

Recently, the "short" interest in one of my stocks was at 45%.

Are you going to tell me that this was not market manipulation?

Thank you.
