    So why would there be a sell off if an big investor takes a short position? Does he know something that everyone else doesn't?
    (Sorry, I'm new to SA and stocks in general).

    As some large investors are successful or have big bets pay off in the past, more and more people follow their movements. If enough people believe the investor is going to be right, they can significantly move the market with the announcement of a new position.
