    The Return of Sharesleuth

    Apparently Sharesleuth’s investigations take a very, very long time. The last article was published in August. And now at the end of September we have a follow-up. This kind of delay is probably a good thing, since the website employs just one reporter and aims at accurate, investigative articles uncovering corporate fraud and misdeeds. But […]

    Okay, Fine. But Let’s Not Forget That Sharesleuth Is Actually Pretty Good.

    The critics of Sharesleuth keep piling on. And while we’ve spent a lot of bandwidth discussing the short-the-story aspect of Mark Cuban’s Shareseluth, we thought we’d pause for a moment to remind everyone that Chris Carey’s reporting was very, very good. Deep, thorough, balanced, objective. Almost heroic. It really is first-rate financial journalism. But don’t […]

    Jeff Jarvis Bodyslams Mark Cuban and Sharesleuth

    A withering critique of Mark Cuban’s Sharesleuth is up over on Buzzmachine. The short version: Mark Cuban’s pre-publication trading creates a conflict-of-interest that undermines the credibility of the Sharesleuth enterprise. But you should read the whole thing to appreciate the full power of Jeff Jarvis’s arguments. Jarvis also breaks some news, pointing out that Cuban […]

    Insider Trading, Inc.

    As long as its Mark Cuban day at DealBreaker, we might as well run with it. Back when Cuban first announced Sharesleuth’s controversial business plan, Bruce Carton at Securities Litigation Watch noted, “I’m sure that Plotkin and Pajcin are kicking themselves right now for not including it in the Insider Trading, Inc. business plan.” (Ah, […]

    Mark Cuban: Sharesleuth is revolutionary

    Cuban’s latest is already posted. Developing… You dont know it yet, but Chris Carey and Sharesleuth broke new ground that will result in a “business journalists employment act”. Hedge Funds, Private investors, Mutual Funds employ analysts by the boatload. They get paid quite nicely. Those analysts spend their waking and probably a good portion of […]

    Gary Weiss vs Mark Cuban, Round Three

    We’re not even sure if it’s really fair to call it round three, since Gary Weiss’s latest response to Mark Cuban’s Sharesleuth comes so fast on the heals of his earlier post. This post needs to be read in its entirety. Weiss actually calls up former Wall Street Journal reporter and convicted insider trader Foster […]

    Gary Weiss vs. Mark Cuban, Round II

    Well, that was quick. Gary Weiss is already responding to the Mark Cuban post we pointed you to this afternoon. I read through his rant a few times and still can’t comprehend his point. He seems to be saying that “transparency” is the virtue of his website. I.e., he is upfront about using his site […]

    Mark Cuban Defends Sharesleuth

    Mark Cuban has come out swinging in defense of the maverick journalism website Sharesleuth. The wealthy entrepreneur came under fire when he announced he was not only sponsoring the site, which takes aim at corrupt business practices and mismanaged companies, but planned to make investment decisions based upon the as-yet-unpublished investigations of its reporter, veteran […]

    ShareSleuth Targets Ethanol Company

    So after we posted the item immediately below we realized we hadn’t even mentioned the target of ShareSleuth’s first article (and Cuban’s short selling)—Xethanol Corp. Here’s Chris Carey’s lead. Xethanol Corp. bills itself as a biotechnology-driven ethanol company that can turn wood chips, corn stalks and paper sludge into cheap alternative fuel. But a […]

    ShareSleuth Hits the Interwebs

    We’re been waiting for ShareSleuth’s first article to get posted ever since it was announced. The entire project appeals to us. And not just the do-gooder parts. Exposing fraud and corporate mismanagement is fine and all, if you go in for that sort of thing. But we have to admit we’re not-so-secretly attracted to the […]

    Can Cuban Do That?

    Can Mark Cuban really trade stocks based on advanced knowledge of stories that will be published on, the blog he is funding that will focus on exposing corporate fraud? Cuban says that he will use the information gathered by investigators for Sharesleuth to buy and sell stocks before the stories are published. Presumably he […]
