The SEC announcement is a tremendous development, and a huge step in the direction of responsible Short Sale Governance.

Today, the Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, Christopher Cox, told the Senate Banking Committee that the agency will invoke emergency action requiring short-sellers to pre-borrow shares of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac prior to executing a short sale. Such a move will protect the mortgage giants from huge sell-offs in their stocks.

LocateStock.com is the only third party software provider of real-time, pre-borrow locates available to the U.S. Capital Markets.

In the Spring of 2006, Trader Magazine quoted the founder and Chief Executive of LocateStock.com, John Tabacco, explaining that because LocateStock.com partners actually borrow the securities, or have proprietary inventory, the locate is as firm as can be. Mr. Tabacco also noted two years ago that regulation is moving in the direction of demanding a pre-borrow.

Today, Mr. Tabacco's words are even more relevant. "The SEC announcement is a tremendous development, and a huge step in the direction of responsible Short Sale Governance."

Mr. Tabacco added that the new direction by the SEC punctuates the LocateStock model, which has been engaged in pre borrowing shares since 2005. "Never before has our corporate slogan been more apropos."

Mr. Tabacco reminds short sellers not to get caught naked and to use LocateStock.com.
