I stated my comment due to the fact that I had found on Etrade and Fidelity that they did not allow short selling in certain stocks as they claimed that shares were unavailable to do so. I thought that was strange and tried to see whether or not etrade would accept a short sale for DDD. It would not allow it (BTW, I am personally LONG on DDD, just looked at this as an experiment). So I suspected that trading companies were restricting short selling due to a small float as with DDD. Sounds like in this discussion, there is some confusion in what can or cannot be done. I assumed in my previous post that an increase in shares would provide a larger float that then companies like etrade would then allow short selling. Anyone have some clarification on this?thanks!
