The Perfect Stock To Short Right Now

|Includes: Cleveland-Cliffs, Inc. (CLF), SDS

 CLF - Cliff's Natural Resources

Why you ask? Because it's THIS GUY'S favorite pick!

James Altucher also believes the S&P is heading towards 1500 because "stocks are cheap".

he says the S&P historically trades at 15 times earnings...which is perhaps correct...if you're talking about bull market tops!

So should us contrarians run out and short the S&P?  Well, that's one idea (and by the way, the latest update on our S&P short position is here).

You might also consider shorting CLF (Cliffs Natural Resources Inc) - if only because it's James' favorite pick!  And why does he love it, you ask? It supplies iron to China!

(Please don't let him know that Chinese stocks topped last year...or show him the chart below, you'll break his bullish heart...)
