This week, The Pack visits with Chris Drose (@bleecker__st on Twitter) of the newly launched activist-short fund, Bleecker Street Capital.
Chris published his first short-report in 2014 while he was still in college. He has since been a regular contributor to Seeking Alpha and was the man and mind behind the well-deserved market-based prosecution and ultimate destruction of American Addiction Centers (AAC). Chris has worked for some of the best hedge and short funds in the county, and with many iconic figures in activist shorting. Previously operating as Bleecker Street Research when he was solo, he has just launched a fund, Bleecker Street Capital to continue his excellent activist work.
Chris takes The Pack though some of his biggest reports, including his work on American Addiction Centers (AAC). AAC had ambitions to be a best-in-class national addiction help center. However, greed, accounting fraud, and criminal charges that included Second-Degree Murder laid them low (with Chris’ help!). What is next for Bleecker Street, thoughts about the market, and the short world vs hedge funds; Chris tells us all about it, from the comfort of his bathroom.
Drugs, deaths, fraud and short selling. Sit back, pour yourself a drink, and enjoy.
