Our Mission 01. Alert you to new short sale ideas. We spend the day reading. We have pretty sophisticated search engines which alert us new new short ideas, as they appear. Keep in mind, short-sellers usually get "public" with their ideas AFTER they have established a short position and the stock may already be nearing its downside price target. We just don't know, you have to read what they write to gain (hopefully) perspective. There could be instances where someone goes public with their short, which causes a lot of selling, which would enable the short to cover - buying what your selling. And we have noticed instance when they are getting devastated and they have to cover - and then they get real noisy - again with the potential for them to buy, what your selling It's some of the dangers of the game. So seller beware. 02. Alert you to new short squeeze ideas. We spend the day reading. We have pretty sophisticated search engines which alert us to potential short squeezes, as they appear. Keep in mind, longs usually get "public" with their ideas AFTER they have established a long position and the stock may already be nearing its upside price target. We just don't know, you have to read what they write to gain (hopefully) perspective. There could be instances where someone goes public with their idea, which causes a lot of buying, which would enable the long to sell what you're buying. 03. Our favorite Analysts. Our favorite Analysts are individuals (most often a "team" of analysts, forensic accountants, traders and lawyers) who we have been following for years and who just amaze us at the uncanny work they do. We've made money following these analyst and lost money.. How you use the information we gather is strictly up to you. We do not offer investment advice. One of the most valuable uses of the news we re-distribute (including for our own short-folio) isn't making money, but rather avoiding losing money. We can't tell you how many times a deep-digging short research analyst saved our butt, by alerting us to something we totally missed in a stock we were long. Happens at least once a month. Yes some of their work might seem self serving, but so what. This isn't about killing the messenger, its about getting the message. So read what they have to say and then make a decision for yourself. Also don't kill us. If we send you a news report about a stock you own and then it triples in a short squeeze after you sell, don't blame us. While our "favorite analysts" have some unbelievable track records, they are human and make mistakes. While we may be vouching for them implicitly by calling them our favorites, we DO NOT vouch for their individual ideas, we are just passing them along for you to read. Whether you take action or not, is strictly up to you. On occasion when we feel what we find is a compelling story, either a short or a short squeeze, after hearing both the long and short STORY - we may venture to go long or go short (usually options - since we can't fathom unlimited risk on the short side) and issue our own "special report." These reports too, are not investment advice and we are not are we investment advisors. We're just telling you what's going on in our head - which can change in a moment without notice as can our open long or short position. We may buy, sell or cover due to personal circumstances, which may be contrary to the trade and contrary to where we think the stock is eventually headed.
