Edwin Dorsey is building a niche in the financial world: reporting the deeds of short-sellers. He is the author of The Bear Cave, a free newsletter he launched in February 2020 shortly after earning his economics degree from Stanford University to keep his readers informed in the short sale world. Through The Bear Cave and his Twitter account, Dorsey shares his findings of corporate misconduct and misleading actions. He also looks at activist campaigns, SEC Enforcement actions, the general business cycle, cycle, and many more.
His first three targets:
“I honestly think if you asked me in third grade what I wanted to be, I would have said investor.”
“I’ve always been a big believer that you’ve got to get your face in front of people.”
“Almost everybody has something to teach you. Even if someone isn’t a wildly successful person in their industry, they’ll know something you don’t.”
“With short-selling, you can actually change something. It’s part investing and part being a social activist.”
"Long investing is just trading pieces of paper back and forth but with short-selling, it’s different. If you expose misconduct, the company can change.”
He has appeared as a guest on Real Vision.
