In Sell Short, author Michael Shulman demystifies the art of short-selling and reveals how investors can successfully use this approach to profit from busted stocks in both up and down markets. Sell Short provides readers with a comprehensive overview of how to capture significant profits with this method by implementing put options in their investment program. And while Shulman focuses on shorting company stocks, he also offers tools and techniques for shorting markets and indices, specific sub-segments of the market, real estate (through REITs), and commodity plays.

Come over to the short side.

Ever since Dutch trader Isaac Le Maire invented short selling in 1609 (and evoked the first ban on it), short selling has been seen as the dark side of stock trading—slightly suspect and too intricate for individual investors. Today, short selling is an integral part of all markets and new tools can make it as simple as buying stocks.

As Michael Shulman explains in this book, a short seller is a profit-seeking contrarian who sees opportunities others do not as a stock or market segment moves down. In Sell Short, Shulman turns the mystery of short selling inside out, revealing how using the same fundamental approach underlying the purchase of a stock can lead to tremendous opportunities on the short side.

Shulman does not believe traditional short selling is a good trading approach for individuals and this simple, but comprehensive overview of short selling focuses on buying puts or, in some situations, exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Throughout these pages, Shulman reveals the day-to-day details needed to generate short side profits. He describes how short selling works and how individual investors can best identify compelling opportunities before Wall Street finds them. Shulman also helps you to determine what part of your portfolio will fund short selling, what percentage of your capital should go to the short side, and how big each position should be.

Filled with in-depth insights and straightforward advice, Sell Short walks you through the mechanics of opening, managing, and closing a position, including rolling or pressing a position to increase profits. (Shulman does cover traditional shorting, though, in case you'd like to take that route.)

Step by step, this book prepares you to:Prospect for gold in fading stocksSee opportunities that Wall Street missesCreate, manage, and exit a positionShort stocks, markets, and indices as well as specific sub-segments of the market, real estate (through REITs), commodities, and even countriesCreate the "rocket-fueled trade"—the higher-risk purchase of calls on double inverse ETFsExplore a dvanced trading techniques such as selling calls, hedging, bear call spreads, selling puts on short ETFs, and more

I'm a Russian Occupant
I have found this book very useful because I am only barely beginning to sell short and would like a safer method, which using put options certainly is as far as risk. However regarding the error discussed another reviews, including the authors answer about the error in chapter 3 which defines a put option, I would like to point out that I have the Kindle version and in an electronic version it is very easy for the publisher to correct the error, yet it still stands as an incorrect definition in the electronic version. The definition of art is actually the opposite of a put option, even in the Kindle version.

the title misslead one to believe the book is all about selling short. it only has one short chapter about selling short the rest of the book is about buying and selling opions. Nothing like a little bait and switch to piss one off.
Mr_Mix
I like the book -- I wrote it - and I just noticed a review that found a glaring editorial mistake in the book. The reviewer found the book contained in an incorrect definition of a put, calling into question my credibility -- a good point. My defense is simple -- it was not there in the final galley proofs, actually it was, along with an estimated 1000 mistakes (no kidding) and I made a correction that did not make it into the printed version of the book. John Wiley is the largest and most successful financial publisher in the world and I can only assume the issues with the book are the exception that prove the rule of Wiley's excellence. In my defense, I have bee training options for 25 years,my newsletter service ChangeWave Shorts has been successful and has a loyal following and I can be found at [...] for those of you who want to see if I know what I am talking about before you buy. My thanks to the gentleman who discovered the mistake and if anyone has questions, contact me at [email protected]

Lots of fluff and very little substance. Read book and through it in garbage. Not worth wasting the space in a book shelf.
Yojin
Detailed and complex book on selling short, gives pros and cons. Great for amateur and skilled investors alike. Easy to read and very well organized.
Laizel
Very crucial and benifitial..

Sell Short recommends a strategy using Puts to profit from Falling Stocks.
In Chapter 3, Mr. Shulman asks "What Exactly Is a Put?" and then goes on in the paragraph that follows with an utterly wrong definition and/or description which would leave an investor/trader totally mis-informed of the definition of a Put. This one paragraph (which deals with the most critical concept for Sell Short - buying a Put option) shows the carelessness in writing and publishing the book 'Sell Short'. Given this carelessness, how can any reader have confidence in other aspects covered in the book by Mr. Shulman?

By the way, John Wiley and Sons has published other books (example: Trade Options Online by George A. Fontanills) which cover their subject well and with care. I have also read several other books on options and each one of them is written with care for accuracy and clarity of concepts explained. I was disappointed with the glaring error in Mr. Shulman's 'Sell Short'.
The author correctly stated: "this is not a trading system". For disclosure my comments are based on about a 45 minute study of a friend's copy. This is a nice read especially for a beginner to get a further overall perspective of things, it is not a roadmap to quickly put money in your pocket which makes me question the validity of another reviewer here. As those in the know(many of whom have been there and tried that) will confirm selling short/playing the short side should not even be a part of the game plan in the management of a 6 or 7 figure 401k(playing with ETF(s) as you can't short) or that 6 figure trading account at a Scottrade. The one specific I take issue with is the suggested use of ETF(s) for playing the short game/side. They are far too inefficient vehicles, just look at the charts of the likes of a FAS, FAZ, or SRS and then try to explain to me how they in anyway accomplished in their own right their intended purpose over the last 12 or 18 months.
