Wouldn't short this one except for a day or two or during coming sell-off. There is no corporate finance effect save making this stock more tradeable once it gets over a dollar and if they restart this will pick up big in my opinion. Also don't see another dilutive raise. They have to perform finally and I'm way down here like a lot of folks and wish I'd gotten out a dollar ago. This is an illiquid microcap with some big sharks watching it, not AIG. They either deliver or TSN will get them sold. Everything else that could go wrong, they've done!
go to your brokerage account. in the trade platform type in company symbol, amount of shares u want to short, and lastly it will ask u to choose your action ( buy or sell). Pick sell and enter trade. Brokerages are picky about the stocks they allow customers to short. Once u enter the trade u will get confirmation or msg back advising whether they will allow u to short this company's stock. Most brokerages will not allow stocks to be shorted if there price is below $5 or they have light trading volume. You will have to search hard for a broker that will allow u to short "synm". Someone on this board may be able to help with that.
OK, listen up ismatic01....this is kind of complicated. What you do is sell first, then buyback later. Got it? I know, I know, kind of complex, but only the best things in life are. Best of luck to you laddie.
PS....check with AIG stock price after their split...
