Bearish Money Manager IDs 10 Vulnerable Stocks

Skeptical of this market? Brad Lamensdorf manager of Active Bear ETF is always skeptical. And he’s naming names.

Ahead of his appearance on CNBC’s Fast Money he revealed his largest short positions to our producers.

They follow:
Citigroup             4.0%
Coach                 3.8%
Deutschebank      3.6%
Green Mountain    3.5%
CarMax               3.2%
Johnson Controls  3.1%
Viasat                 3.1%
Tiffany                3.1%
Vale                    3.0%
Constant Contact  3.0%

Lamensdorf tells us that he’s currently adding to his current short positions and establishing new ones.

As he’s said in the past on Fast Money, he sifts through the S&P 1500 looking for stocks that look challenged, especially technically.

And from there he pares down the list until he comes up with stocks that he thinks are most vulnerable.

But he adds, “In no way do we think any of the companies that we short are going bankrupt, it’s just that they’re facing issues.”
