Is It Wrong To Take A Position In A Stock And Then Write About It On Seeking Alpha?
Wed, Aug. 6 • 185 Comments
- Some people claim that “talking your book” about a stock which you own or are short is wrong. It isn’t.
- Talking your book isn’t the same as front running or manipulation. Front running is the abuse of privileged information for personal gain. Manipulation is the intentional dissemination of false information.
- Investors have greater incentives to get stocks right than journalists or sell-side analysts, so their research is more valuable.
- Investors’ best research is typically about the stocks they know most about - the stocks they have positions in.
Short Sellers And Seeking Alpha
Fri, Aug. 1 • 261 Comments
- Real investors, because of their biases, have the best insights, because they're most motivated to get it right.
- Rather than a "house opinion," we believe SA readers want multiple viewpoints on a stock.
- Vigorous debate between longs and shorts works. SA articles have uncovered frauds, and have correctly predicted huge upward moves in stocks which the media and sell-side analysts never caught.
Notes On Yahoo's Strategy
- Yahoo missed earnings and guided lower, partially due to weakening online ad sales.
- Yahoo recently launched a finance contributor network, possibly in order to monetize Tumblr, and because it views contributor content as a cheaper way to generate pageviews and ad sales.
- At Seeking Alpha, we don't view "cheap" as the key advantage of a contributor network. We believe that crowdsourcing will revolutionize equity research, and that contributors should be rewarded fairly.
