    GE moved there from NY for that reason, maybe history will repeat itself. With the breakup of GECAP,I guess there a few shoppers anyway

    Are you paying the full amount of the short or are you putting it on margin?

    ANTIQUARY

    LINE gets you a K1 which usually gives you a better deal than regular dividends but if in a retirement account could generate a UBT tax

    LNCO is a Corp but my understanding is the last few years it has come under the return of capital provision.

    Each of the two questions I asked were pertaining to your right to privacy under the 4 &5 amendment so for years those freedom were violated by people within the government . To be precise they took away the freedom of association you might remember that was one of the ideals Thomas Jefferson spoke of. You kept asking what freedom(s) means your knowledge of history needs improvement. You might also look up how they developed the idea of probable cause.

    I guess that was to tough
    Another question then.

    what should the penalty be when a government work collets your personal information without any real probable cause.

    great idea!
    give us the details of the shorts and any options you want to use as a hedge. Right at this moment I assume I will get assigned in august
    Plan B assuming the stock is above 10 and below 12 I would do a calendar rollout to jan 16.
    Plan C will be if the stock is under 10 around 8/15 I will unwind and cry
    C'est pour tenter de vivre un autre jour . and go get a cold beer.

    I await you post after the trade

    there is no mocking whether you get it right or wrong. The point is to describe the process you go through to make your decision.

    Think of a loss as a plane crash and you become the NTSB to look at all possible mistakes you could have made. If you can identify what went wrong, you put that on your try not to do that list.

    On my trading desk besides the three computers a have a number of pencils and a few white erasers for my calculations.

    How much have you paid out for your short position on dividends. That's lost cash flow. Most pro's will never short a monthly dividend stock that pay over 10% for that reason but I would like to hear your logic to it. 2 Jun, 07:33 PM

    you did not put a heading on it
    but if you think this post answered my question
    here is the logic

    BBEP
    LINE
    SDRL

    and ....LINE is 75% off of the top - how can it not make sense to short it?

    you tell me. In fact, some of the best shorts are high yield. You don't sound very savvy 2 Jun, 08:52 PM

    That's not logic it's a rhetorical statement.

    no wonder you never give the right answer your reading needs an upgrade.

    a copy direct from your comments proving you are dishonest just like I said in my previous comment
    you said
    I shorted LINE 3 different times and right now shorted it last at $22...tell me how much that dividend hurts....

    while on a different article you said
    Linn Energy: A Poorly Timed Secondary [View article]

    Dilution, pure and simple, and more trouble ahead.

    more lemmings to buy stock that dilutes your position.

    reality. I shorted more at $13 and may short more, what a pig

    mc gonicle proved nothing as he has not responded to my questions

    so now you can answer what money did you put up against the short initially?

    try reading FRB reg T if you need a reference.

    mcgonicle

    your quote
    You do not need to pay "margin interest" on a short.
    simple questions 1]

    how much money do you have to put up in an margin account to do a short position?(notice I'm not asking an account that has long positions)
    lets assume GW shorted 500 share at 22.

    question 2]
    I said most shorts are done at 50% margin although you can put up 100%.
    Now assuming he put up 50% at what point in the decline of the stock would he not have to pay margin and add in his distribution buy in as you call them?
