I hate hedge funds, hiding in the long numbers, they should have to tell how many stocks they are shorting.
Hedge funds are always shorting stock, making the price go down. Hedge add nothing to the market, They are robbing the bank. They should be in jail.
Securities lending is is, where hedge funds want to short stocks (force the price of stocks down, and so they give large mutual funds millions of $ to borrow stocks. And the SEC winks and looks the other way. Why would the SEC not do something to help the small investor .
This is just BS and short selling, selling high and buying lower;. Do not be afraid, it will come back higher, GILD is selling like hotcakes. stronger buy.When they cover, the stock will shoot up.
