Selling short: the Cuban angle



Those who followed our discussion this spring between Moin Yahya and Larry Ribstein on short selling and insider trading -- or who are otherwise interested in the subject -- should check out this new post from Professor Bainbridge. It seems Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has a new website, Sharesleuth.com, intended to expose "unsavory business practices and misleading accounting by public companies." The catch? Cuban intends to short-sell the stocks of companies the website will target. Professor Bainbridge's analysis is, typically, right on the money.
