About

Short Seller Ideas is dedicated to highlighting the research unearthed by the relatively new phenomenon of activist short selling.

There are many definitions of an activist short seller, but the simple one is someone who has unearthed fraud, wrongdoing or extreme overvaluation at a public company, bets against the company’s securities and then publishes their findings. Some have called them un-American or icky, but we believe activist short sellers help hold companies and individuals accountable by scouring areas of the market that regulators, law enforcement and journalists either don’t have the resources or inclination to look. Short sellers have uncovered dozens of massive frauds and have even saved lives.

This site is a compendium of research and ideas made public by short sellers, most of the activist variety, both well known and unknown. We have not vetted the validity of the research, but present it here for you to come to your own conclusions.
