I am not sure where the urban legend started that GTC orders prevent brokers from lending shares to short, but it's just that --a myth. On the main topic, I agree-Ward is just taking too much, if he wants the shareholders to wait 3 years for the big payday, he should be willing to do the same for himself.
SD was at $13.00 in Dec of 2010,..don't give your stock away!. I'll sell ALL my SD stock for $13.10 a share!
I've waited a long time for some "action" ,..was hoping Carl Ichan would take a peek at SD.
He moved CHK over 25% upwards, and I like SD's "turn" to Oil/great Leases,..WAY SOONER than CHK did. GOOD LUCK. all JMHO
