Since January 2015, I’ve been using a research platform called Sentieo (website). The main attraction of Sentieo is “Document Search”, a tool that searches through EDGAR filings, investor presentations, and conference call transcripts at the same time. It allows me to find key pieces of information that I otherwise would not find.
For short selling, Sentieo is incredibly useful since almost all of my short selling involves tracking down scumbags. Much of my work is spent searching through SEC filings for names of people, company names, and addresses.
