This is a forum for the exchange of short ideas in biotech. Lots of money is being thrown at biotech, and there's a lot of chaff. Many threads are looking for the cream of the crop. Let's also find the bottom of the barrel!

Politeness expected. Reasoning for your idea (i.e. overhyped market, subset analysis/weak trial data, unfavorable deal strucutre, superior competition, just plain overvalued or overbought, etc.) also expected, with links and references a nice bonus.

I'll be more actively involved than when I started this, and have now attached a portfolio. The portfolio started with $100K. Note that to measure portfolio performance on closed positions, simply divide profit by $100K. For overall performance, take the "gain/loss" and add or subtract that figure to or from the profit, then divide by $100K.

Cheers, Tuck
