Everyone says don't loan your shares and ask to have them sold at a higher price to stop them from being borrowed. The thing is if you believe long term in this stock then why not loan and get the short term money. I currently do not loan mine but think about it. You get the crazy % they are willing to pay to borrow short term and when the news comes out the stock goes up. YOu profit twice, but have to wait for it. The only down side is short term manipulation and if you belive in the company who cares about the short term noise?
