Achieving financial security by short selling your stocks
Short selling is a risky, but very effective if done correctly, to profit from declining stock prices. Basically, it is a bet against a stock or company. When you buy a stock, you expect the price to go up in order to get money by selling it afterward. On the other hand, when you short a stock you expect the price to go down.

Calling your broker on time, before the word spreads is essential. So as soon as you hear that financial troubles situation, call your broker to short 1 share of that company.
