Lets keep the shorts from being able to sell short any shares of MAGS! All you have to do is to put a high "good till cancel" order for all your shares in MAGS...Example: $50. This way the brokerage house cannot borrow your shares for short selling. If enough longs did this, the share price will go through the roof when shorts try to cover.
Thats a nice thought, and a common post on message boards but it isnt true. I once thought the same thing, but after talking to my broker learned that it doesnt work that way.
The only way your shares cant be loaned out to short is if they are registered in your name, not the brokerage. Also, if they are in a cash account. Like I said, I rode this long and short all day and there were always shares available to short.
