Is it time to take profits in Kogan?

In the nine months since June 2017, the share price of Kogan (ASX: KGN), Australia’s online retailer, has soared by almost 460 per cent.  But is this Amazon style company now over-priced?  For an answer to that, look no further than the recent stock sales by KGN directors.

    So would you consider shorting Kogan given the extravagant price, insider selling and industry headwinds?

    The trout are biting down here too, by the way.

    • G’day Greg,

      I hope you’re well and thanks for the update. Shorting requires a framework and a portfolio approach (many small positions). Some look for a catalyst while others require an industry or structural headwind, a problem balance sheet with asymmetric risk, misperceptions about the financials – for example a fraud or divergent expectations between the market and the investor, or some or all of the above.

  2. Hi Roger, one could ask a similar question about Altium. Do you have a view on this that you’d be willing to share?
