GE, IBM on "Do Not Short" list?

Wednesday, September 24, 2008 | 11:33 AM

General Electric has managed to weasel its way onto the DO NOT SHORT list.

This answers the question many people have been asking for years: Is GE an Industrial or a Financial?

I can see GE, with its giant black box hedge fund, as a financial. But somehow, IBM has also gotten itself deemed a financial!

Why, because they finance purchases? So does Cisco, Lucent, EMC, SUN, and all the other big tech companies.

WTF is that about? Are they next on the do-not-short list?
