In the Valuex Vail 2012 conference, Dan Amoss, the editor of Strategic Short Report, presented a case to sell short Con-Way (CNW), a trucking company. This article will provide a brief summary of the key points discussed in the presentation and shed light on the potential reasons behind the suggested short position.
Amoss highlighted several core assumptions about the market environment, including the addictive nature of quantitative easing, the lack of successful examples of reversing quantitative easing, and the possibility of lagging economic indicators in the US compared to Europe and China. These assumptions led to the belief that P/E ratios for most stocks would remain low.
