Sentiment: Strong Buy
Short selling is hard enough to get your head around without getting into all the particulars. If you have a basic understanding of short selling, then you probably know that as a short seller, you are required to make up for any benefits a long investor would receive if he or she had actually owned the stock.
When you short a stock, you are borrowing the stock from an investor or broker, then selling those shares on the open market to a second investor. Even though you borrowed and sold the shares to another investor, the transaction between you and the lender is still listed on the books as if the lender is still long on the stock and you are short on the stock (even though that person no longer owns the stock).
Because that original investor who was kind enough to lend you the stock is no longer an actual shareholder with the company, the short seller is required to make up for any benefits the investor would have received had he or she actually still owned the stock.
In other words, if a company pays a dividend to shareholders, the second investor who bought the shares from the short seller would get the dividend check from the company. But because the original investor is no longer a shareholder of record (because the second investor owns those shares now), then the short seller must pay the dividend out of his or her own pocket.
Finally, when the short seller decides to close out the short position, he or she buys shares on the open market (from a third investor) and then gives the shares back to the original investor, who closes out the short position and puts everything back to square one
All you said there was short sellers pays the dividend to the guy that bought the short share. You totally agreed with me. There is an extra long share holder that wants his dividend. its not that hard of a concept.
Whats wrong with that. Long shares are created. That's why a short seller pays a dividend to the extra long share that the company does not pay to. Company still pays dividend to the lender of shares Long shares are deemed created by short sellers fact. If that is not the case I want all the dividends that I paid as a short seller paid back to me.
Perhaps those who believe strongly in companies like Apple should look at Enron, Worldcom, MF Global, Lehmen brothers, general motors, cit group, American airlines. All these bankrupt companies were darlings of wall street. Impossible for apple to crumble like these earlier titans you say. Think again.
ya strange such a great investor would miss out on doubling his money in a few weeks. Apple needs to go to 1100 to see Blackberry returns. Pretty funny when rimtards are smarty then one of americas greatest investors.
Last year when the stock climbed from 6 to 18, short share continued to climb the entire time. if bears think blackberry is going to zero, and dead, why would they cover? I don't think there was any covering yesterday.
Plus they will be receiving up to a billion in tax refunds for past losses, plus they will be receiving more back for this huge loss, plus they will most likely be receiving the 250 million credit in coming weeks.
