How does Hindenburg Research make money?-
Adani Group alleged that Hindenburg had personal interest with fall of Adani Groups stocks. Hindenburg Research can make money. In its Adani report, it said that it had taken a “short position in Adani Group Companies” through bonds that trade in the U.S. and other investments that trade outside India. But they are smart business firm who targets those companies who has actually some thing wrong in it which legally protect them and they do their business with financial activism.
Hindenburg Research has made similar “short” bets against other companies it published unflattering reports on. A “short” trade is a way for someone to make money if an investment’s price falls. Afterward, if the price of a company’s stock or bonds falls because of the negative attention from the report, Hindenburg can profit.
Such short sellers have been criticized for unfairly pushing down prices of stocks with potentially unfounded allegations. But proponents also call them a healthy part of a stock market, keeping stock prices in check and preventing them from running too high or over price. In India there is no facility of investment in part of the stock price so already stock prices are today very high and normal invest cant able to buy these stocks.
