How does one know if rumors are true or false? If true, are they then rumors? Hype is part of the market along with Caveat Emptor.

Our screens avoid deceptive hype, because they don't tap into it. But
I have owned a company that absolutely falsified the annual report, so even a screen couldn't protect you.

I also think I recently read that naked shorting is legal in either
Canada or Australia. I don't recall which.
