Seems like I have all the support here. Case closed.
Shorters are nothing short of criminals and absolute scum. The fall in GKP's SP to 42p only a month ago was because of people like you driving it lower and lower on the back of false rumours and despite an absence of negative news.
We hope events at Quindell this week where the company was almost destroyed will finally lead to a ban of shorting in this country as well - long overdue.
We want companies to grow and prosper - not fail - you have to have a truly sick mind to wish misery on a company and all its employees/genuine shareholders.
Thanks again for a great post . If any one on here don't now have a read of 4 LeafClover post he is one to follow as all post are good . He works hard on he,s investigation in to GKP and comes out with all answers, Well done sir .
Not shorting! And lack of buying is linked to the "gone to join the choir invisible" CPR, and to PERCEPTION. John Gerstenlauer has made his views on the late CPR abundantly clear. As for perception...that's down to IR, PR and broker analyst coverage. I think John has had a bellyful of poor communications and coverage, and has grasped the nettle.
...involved in shenanigans. Banning the loaning of shares that you own would clearly be a violation of the very principle of ownership. But lending shares for which you are merely a nominee cannot be correct, without the express consent of the beneficial owner. What I suggest is needed is that those lending shares for this purpose should be NAMED. That way, their potential motives can be considered.
Naked shorting (selling shares that you don't have) isn't allowed. Whether or not it takes place, I don't know. So someone with shares has to lend them to a shorter, who then sells them, and eventually buys them back and returns them. If the owner of the shares believed that lending them (for a fee) was going to damage their value long-term, why would they do it? It would make no sense UNLESS they were inv
When we talk about shorting are you guys that short talking about it in the truest sense, ie selling stock you don't own, or are you on about cfd's ? To my mind a CFD wouldn't make any difference to a share price as you never buy or sell the stock, (apologies if this is a dumb statement)
Have to agree with NW, if you take shorting out of the market, or leverage, it would be far more illiquid and you would not get the volatility , up or down. Shorting also acts as a ' indicator' to what the general market thinks, a handy tool with so many suspect BODs on these stocks. At the end of the day any short position has to be closed , or bought so will always end in high buying demand. GKP will remain volatile until the balance sheet is sorted which may in the short term result in a placing whilst payments are lagging.
