I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.


I lasted shorted shares in Sirius Minerals (SXX) in August 2013 when the company, desperate for cash, announced a death spiral equity finance loan from an unnamed New York based firm. This was misleadingly dressed up as an investment, with CEO Chris Fraser even crowing that it demonstrated  “confidence in the on going development of the York Potash project” when anyone familiar with death spiral financing knows that it did no such thing and such arrangements invariably cause steep declines in the share price.
