Web-Sites That Short Stocks & Then Expose Them: Are They Making Money?
This session will look at investigative web-sites whose financial model is to profit from price falls in publicly-listed securities. They do this by identifying red flags in publicly-listed companies, shorting their shares, and then publishing the negative information for other investors to make of what they will.
Our panel will discuss how target companies are chosen, the impact their stories typically have on share prices, the ethics and legality of operating this way, and whether this business model has proven to be financially successful.
