To insure efficient markets and reduce manipulation, I believe it is important that short interest be reported for all stocks including issues traded in the over the counter markets. I also believe that information on short interest should be published daily rather than monthly. Finally, I think it is important to enforce regulation SHO vigorously. Currently a number of stocks have remained on the SHO list for months, which is unacceptable.
