Apologies in advance for my lack of knowledge, but please allow me to ask a question re shorting. For all you professional traders out there, this will seem overly basic and, you may want to move on. My question is this: When a company is shorted, then wouldn't it make sense for the large holders to buy up the shares at the reduced cost, and put the heat on the shorters? I know it is not as simple as that, but even if they lost out a small amount isn't it better to nip it in the bud to send a signal to the shorters?
"What are the characteristics (maximum holdings, voting rights and other rights) of treasury shares? A company which purchases its own shares may either cancel them or keep them as treasury shares ("dormant shares" – according to the wording of the Law). As long as such treasury/dormant shares are held by the company, they shall not grant the company any rights (financial, voting, etc.) whatsoever (Section 308 (a) of the Law)."
According to Bloomberg , one country (i missed what it was) is imposing a digital tax, due to the revenues being made as a result of lockdown. How they know what those revenues are idk, but there you go.
