hi folks,

to hedge a long portfolio it might be prudent to learn about shorting stocks.

here are some of my thoughts.

which are the best candidates:
1. larger losses or lower profits over time
2. large and increasing debt/equity ratio
3. cash position detoriating
4. declining sales
5. steady price decline on the chart

watch dividend date before trading

what are your criteria before jumping in?

what are likely candidates at the moment?
