#292 – Tom Barton, White Rock Capital – I Just Thought, Well, This Is The Dumbest Short Of All-Time

97 minutes

In episode 292, we welcome our guest, Tom Barton, famed-short seller and founder and President of White Rock Capital.    In today’s episode, we start with taking a look back at one of Tom’s tweets from September, which said that GameStop was a misunderstood short, and hear why he thought so back then. We also touch on the differences between shorting based on valuation versus because the company is a fraud. Then we turn to what he mostly focuses on these days: biotech and gene-therapy companies. We hear about his brutal two-year experience as an activist and what he learned from the experience.    As we wind down, Tom walks us through some companies he likes in the biotech space, and even shares a SPAC that looks attractive to him at the moment.    Please enjoy this episode with the White Rock Capital’s Tom Barton.
