Who has watched Netflix's 'Dirty Money'

Fantastic is an understatement.

Best documentary on short selling that I've ever seen. It's about the collapse of Valeant and the work by short sellers Fahmi Quadir, Roddy Boyd and John Hempton was top notch. Valeant comes out looking like the pharmaceutical equivalent of Enron.

Short sellers actually look like the good guys. It brought a whole new perspective to the social conscious they bring to investing, big pharma and fraud.

How much did Fahmi Quadir make on her Valeant short sale?

I am not sure the exact amount because she was working for a hedge fund when the short was made. I did read that she is launching a $200 million hedge fund this year which will focus on shorting fraudulent companies.

She'll probably be shorting Mimedx like her mentor Marc Cohodes.

Don't forget the man crush Bill Ackman had on Michael Pearson. It was the crush that ultimately lost him and his company lots of cash.

I guess Bill was enamored by a CEO that thought research was worthless (and risky) and loved acquiring foreign companies for tax benefits. What a winner.

No negative story about Valeant surprises me at all, especially considering former Valeant executive Gary Tanner and Andrew Davenport used secret shell companies to get rich by illegally converting Valeant shareholders' money into their own personal nest eggs. Philidor was the bomb.

They could make a six part series about the fraud and drama at Valeant. Start with Philidor.

Philidor too.

It would be a good series indeed. The level of fraud at Valeant before they got caught was insane. It was movie or book worthy. It really is sad that this type of fraud is probably going on at other companies in pharma still.

It was a crush but still...how does an educated investor with a great track record not see the fraud prior to investing in Valeant. He really didn't think something was fishy?
