If you get shelfed you better have a good ROI working for you wich means you better of bought real cheap if your going to wait some ten years to trade again.
I have been down that road and in fact still down that road in waiting. Look at there accounts payable and recivables that represents there shorting activities and what is owed and the payment will be selling shares obtained and as far as I'm concerned they have a way to go.
I have studdied this stuff hard long and deep and to short a stock they have to sell and that is were there treasury stock is comming into play here.
Those shares are hot potatoes if your not shorted this stock that I just did and have already covered my margin position that came up and may go in again here. Wash repeat and wash repeat if you want to stay in this game.
