I read that while holding a shorted stock, you must pay any divendends to the broker you sold it to. I don't quite understand this. It seems like a company is paying out a dividend for every share that's out there, and that if you sell short to a broker, the dividend amount would go to the buyer (broker) from the company, not from the short holder. Can someone clear this up for me? Thanks.
