Q3 hedge fund letters, conference, scoops etc

The Kase Learning Shorting Conference is the only event dedicated solely to short selling. Our first conference on May 3rd was a home run and the one coming up on December 3rd promises to be even better.

Over the course of the day, 20 of the world’s smartest short sellers will pitch their current favorite ideas and answer questions afterwards. The best speakers are returning, including Carson Block, Sahm Adrangi, Gabriel Grego (who exposed the fraud at Folli Follie; the stock was halted two weeks later), Chris Brown (Energous, down more than 50%), and Victoria Hart (jeweler Pandora, down 41%). In addition, there will be a dozen new speakers. As an added benefit, we'll be livestreaming the whole day and will also make the recording available to all registrants soon after the event.
