Senator Levin said: “Naked short selling enables unscrupulous traders
to manipulate the stock market and can directly damage U.S. companies
and the shareholders who own them. This report confirms that the SEC
should consider and implement an arsenal of weapons to combat abusive
short selling. A requirement that short sellers must borrow shares
before engaging in a short sale would go a long ways towards ending
this abusive practice. Although decreasing the number of failures to
deliver is certainly not the only measure for success in fighting
abusive short selling, I note that when the SEC issued a temporary
preborrow requirement last July on a limited number of stocks, the
number of new failures to deliver in those stocks dropped by 78%.”
