Hedgeye, 25 June 2019
Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough just hosted a conversation with renowned short-seller Marc Cohodes. If you haven’t watched it yet, we encourage you to do so. According to Cohodes, the craft of short-selling is more than just about making money, it’s about exposing business practices that are at best deeply questionable and at worst… criminal.
“I try to find bad management and bad motives, people who are ripping off innocents,” Cohodes says. “I look for bad accounting and people who have no respect for the law, markets and free speech… I am a nasty mother**cker when you stir me up.”
If you’re interested in listening to some amazing war stories and gleaning powerful investing perspective from a successful short-selling veteran, this interview is for you. (This is must-see TV… Bloomberg calls Cohodes “the Scourge of Wall Street.”)
