NEW YORK, March 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- iQSTEL Inc. (OTCQX: IQST) today announced its Independent Board of Directors (BOD) instructed management to identify specific IQST naked shorting targets and to fight against those targets. Toward that end, management has entered into negotiations with a highly specialized firm in matters of naked short selling. This firm has a reputation for finding and countering naked shorting issues.
OTCShortReport indicates short selling has exceeded 50% of the daily iQSTEL daily trading volume on more than one occasion in the last month. OTCShortReport aggregates REGSHO data reported by FINRA.
The prominence of short selling became a high visibility topic when a crowd sourced short squeeze catapulted the share price of GameStop. The GameStop short selling subject was featured in the HBO documentary Gaming Wall Street.
MarketWatch recently published an article titled Why Short Selling Has Recently Become A Hot Topic that explains short selling in fair detail and includes information on short selling in the OTC markets.
"We have received communications from our shareholders expressing concern that the IQST share price is suffering the impact of naked short selling," said iQSTEL CEO Leandro Iglesias. "In response to these concerns, the iQSTEL Independent Board of Directors has authorized management to act accordingly. Management has entered into negotiations to engage a well respected firm in matters of naked short selling. This firm, subject to finalizing an engagement, will perform a deep analysis of the naked shorting in IQST to identify any specific bad actors. If we identify illegal activity, we will address that activity in court to defend our company to the fullest extent of the law. We are not blazing a new trail in the fight against short selling. We will be following in the footsteps of proven tactics against short sellers."
