10 Sell Ideas from Whitney Tilson

In a recent letter to investors, Whitney Tilson’s T2 Partners discussed what went wrong in 2011, likening its performance last year to 2008/2009. The letter spoke in very honest terms about the fund’s numbers and detailed its current positions. Amongst those holdings listed was a ranking of T2 Partners’ largest short positions. These are mostly high PE stocks or companies facing serious competitive or regulatory challenges.
