Michael Shulman shows traders how to focus on individual stocks and sectors that are underperforming and then profit from them. An invaluable tool to complement any investor's trading strategies.» —Gerald Scheinman, Alcyone Capital Management, LLC «Michael has been spot on about the financial and economic crises for more than two years, way ahead of most in the financial industry. He tells it like it is, avoids the fluff, and has an uncanny ability to zero in on the critical aspects of the issues. He writes easily, with clarity and humor—and a reader always knows where Michael stands on an issue or how to execute a trade.» —William Hyman, Investor «Both institutional fund managers and retail investors will find Sell Short profoundly informative for identifying multiple ways to approach protecting downside risk in a portfolio as well as simply making money on the short-side. As a long-oriented fund, the downdraft of 2008 made it abundantly clear that everyone needs to have a deep base of 'short' knowledge in order to generate strong returns. Shulman's book should prove invaluable to novices and experts alike.» —Jon Plexico, Stonepine Capital LP

Leave the old paradigm behind and start safeguarding your portfolio Short Selling with the O'Neil Disciples is a guide to optimizing investment performance by employing the unique strategies put forth by William O'Neil. The authors traded these strategies with real money, then refined them to reflect changing markets and conditions to arrive at a globally-relevant short-selling strategy that helps investors realize maximum profit. Readers will learn how short selling recognizes the life-cycle paradigm arising from an economic system that thrives on 'creative destruction,' and has been mischaracterized as an evil enterprise when it is simply a single component in smart investing and money management. This informative guide describes the crucial methods that preserve gains and offset declines in other stocks that make up a portfolio with more of an intermediate- to long-term investment horizon, and how to profit outright when markets begin to decline. Short-selling is the act of identifying a change of trend in a stock from up to down, and seeking to profit from that change by riding the stock to the downside by selling the stock while not actually owning it, with the idea of buying the stock back later at a lower price. This book describes the methods that make short-selling work in today's markets, with expert advice for optimal practice. Learn the six basic rues of short-selling Find opportunities on both the long and short sides of stocks Practice refined methods that make short-selling smarter Examine case studies that profitably embody these practices Investors able to climb out of the pessimistic, conspiratorial frame of mind that fixates on the negative will find that short selling can serve as a practical safeguard that will protect the rest of their portfolio. With clear guidance toward the techniques relevant in today's markets, Short Selling with the O'Neil Disciples is an essential read.
