Dear Clueless In Cyberspace,

T has 3 billion shares outstanding, there isnt a single thing you can do to move T up a single penny. Each and every share is marginable and each short share is most likely a hedge against a long share by a long hedge fund or Institution.

If you were to buy 8 hours of TV time a day for the next 3 years you couldnt change the price by a single cent..

I came out of hybernation to adress the most riduculous idea I have yet to see on the Internet yet..

Good luck to you, make sure you demand your certificates.
But , if you own T on margin kick yourself in the head first for "enabling " the shorts. Oh , btw you can't have your certs unless they are fully paid for..which Im assuming 70% of T shares are not.
