    Ummmmm, yeah. He has been paid by hedge funds for years to do research. How many shares have these hedge funds shorted before this report?

    I don't question that GE may have been up to bullshit, but this seems too clean of an exposure.

    :facepalm: Unfuckingbelievable.

    A disclaimer on the website read: "Prior to the initial distribution of this Report on August 15, 2019, the Company entered into an agreement with a third-party entity to review an advanced copy of the Report in exchange for later-provided compensation. That compensation is based on a percentage of the profits resulting from the third-party entity's positions in the securities, derivatives, and other financial instruments of, and/or relating to, General Electric Company ("GE") (NYSE: GE). Those positions taken by the third-party entity are designed to generate profits should the price of GE securities decrease."

    I have been as they call it, "On the street" or in the financial biz for almost 25 years at this point. Nothing surprises me anymore and I trust almost no one in the business. Everyone is in it for some motive. Very few of us actually give a shit about the client or the public. I have seen a ton of shit. Fucking shark tank.
