About this item

How short sellers profit from disasters that afflict individuals, markets, and nations

Short Sellers serves up tales from the dark side of the world marketplace to reveal how traders profit from the failure and, often, the financial ruin of others. In this book Bloomberg journalist Richard Teitelbaum profiles more than a dozen short sellers to reveal how they employ the tactics, strategies, and various styles to zero in on their target, get the needed financing, and see their investment through to its ultimate conclusion.

The short sellers profiled will include stories of both their successful investments as well as their disastrous ventures. The book will examine the different styles, strategies, and tactics utilized, looking at how each short seller researches his or her targets, obtains financing, puts on a trade, and sees the investment through to fruition—or failure. With the appeal of a well-written adventure novel,Short Sellers reveals how these investors seek publicity to help drive down a stock and shows the often bitter and controversial battles that ensue.
