Good for you. The doomsday financial media is the one that is ruining financial markets with S#^T. When the print wants the markets to go up everything will smell like roses.
The Media will spin and say anything for their paid cronies on the short side or for other reasons. The SEC isn’t doing anything for disseminating false information and in the meantime the retailer investor get #$%^ED
"Marissa Mayer on media's 'blatant falsehoods' about Yahoo's holiday party"
A call with analysts Tuesday afternoon, Mayer called those reported costs to be "blatant falsehoods."
"I have found these untruths to be upsetting, and I'm sure our investors have as well," Mayer said, adding that the food and photo costs had been exaggerated by "more than a factor of three."
Mayer said Yahoo's holiday parties cost $150 per invited attendee. And the food program is a tech industry standard, she argued, yet "generally run less expensively" at Yahoo than elsewhere.
The real problem is that shorts love to "pin the bid," which is a manipulative technique whereby short-sellers don't first wait for a buyer to come to them at a higher level, say on the ask price, but, instead, they short directly on the bid price repeatedly (called "pinning") until the bid finally "caves in."
Shorts have learned that if they "tag-team" the bid in this manner, it will, undoubtedly, cave, and the resulting bid will be pushed lower, and then lower and then lower still. With the ask price lowering in tandem with a dropping bid price, exacerbated by other shorts on the ask going lower, longs now start to panic and lower their sell (ask) price even further. Many longs then start selling on the bid itself, and, eventually, the bid is also taken lower and lower as longs panic further, and potential buyers lower their bids in trying to buy as low as possible"
"You buy the stocks instead of the div and give them to the owner(s) of your borrowed stocks. Then you cover FCAU at the new price and you should be even........or near even."
A bit confused here.....What you're saying "the short" have to buy Ferrari (RACE) now or within the distribution time frame and give to the borrower, then buy FCAU after price adjustment to cover the original short? That's very risky IMHO.
