Bill Gates Has A Half Billion Dollars ( 500 million ) Short Position Against Tesla

When you short a stock, you want that particular company to fail in the long run. Hedge Funds have been doing that for decades, where they have shorted companies to bankruptcy, so that they do not have to cover or close their position. This is called “Predatory Short Selling”, in which a Hedge Fund does not care about fundamentals, but they just want the company cellar boxed and eventually, they file for bankruptcy.
