When shorts have a large short position on a stock, they hedge their short by buying calls.
When a stock is under a short attack calls become even cheaper. When you short a stock and buy calls you end up with a planned almost never lose situation.
For myself, I simply avoid calls and avoid shorting stocks, particularly stocks heavily shorted.
The SEC is not funded sufficiently to monitor manipulation of stocks.
You can point directly to Congress for that fact.
You can point to voters who elect these people who do not want SEC investigations.
Sure looks like Europe will wait until the January deep freeze when polar vortex swoops down over Europe before considering more offshore drilling for their energy independence. In the meantime USA is expected to continue footing their defense bills.

I agree. Usually when a ratings downgrade happens the true meaning is a "money lender" wants to get a the most return on their "loan". Maybe WHR is in the process of negotiating covenants for some sort of financing?
Believe me, shorts are the best friend longs can get.
In fact they are the lovers to be hugged and squeezed.
So do about 75,000 small businesses that depend on the Import:Export bank for trade financing.
Why do analysts spend money doing analysis?
Why is the incentive for an analyst to downgrade a company?
--Someone is about to lend money to the company and will benefit from better loan covenants?
--Someone is about to buy the stock and benefits from a lower stock price?
What is the financial incentive? Do analysts upgrade:downgrade just to be nice?
Yes. That is possible. The urgency for long-acting insulin is less than for fast acting.
I did find references to long acting dry form in research articles when I looked a couple of months ago.
"Covidien (COV) is in Overbought Territory: What's Next?"
What is the difference between BSYBY and BSYBF? Is there really any difference other than the ratio of ADR shares to the underlying company stock?
