This is true: there are companies which accuse investors who perform credit sales of making their quotation fall. Although the stock market is only a financial market and prices fall while there are more sales than purchases and vice versa. There investors who perform credit sales and also investors who sell their shares – with those who do not buy – are all evenly responsible for the fall in prices. Why not accuse those investors who do not buy, as well? If that position were consistent, they must also accuse the investors who chose to buy of forcing the price up!
