My brokerage firm asked me writing last week to borrow my shares of TSLA, being "high-demand securities", and get paid interest on that loan. See attached (redacted). I have other stocks and was never asked about those. It made me think. I'm long TSLA starting at $35/sh, and intend to hold for years to come. Pros of lending: I'd make some money off those who foolishly short TSLA. Further I would have the right to demand the shares back any time, so I could choose a time that would hurt the shorts the most. That would be satisfying. Cons of lending: I'd be an enabler of a short-seller's bad habit, perhaps encouraging more to short. By not lending, short-sellers have a harder time (pay more) finding TSLA shares to short. What do you think? Would you lend your TSLA shares or not?
