    Shorting stocks, as an investment strategy, is poor. As statistics show, stocks grow over time. They are also perfectly priced. So the odds you'll get lucky are less than 50%

    Now there is one GOOD reason to short a stock. And that is if it is part of your hedging strategy. In other words, if you are heavily invested in an industry, and want to minimize risk of the industry dropping, then you may short some stocks (with options, not full shorts) in order to make money on the other side of the equation... that is, on the short if the industry crashes.

    Some companies short stocks of other companies to the extent that they have payment risk if the business declines.

    There are couple of things to consider, firstly the average stock will yield a profit in the long term, so it will be harder to find a stock to short than a stock to buy.

    Shorting, or short-selling, is the point at which a financial specialist gets shares and quickly offers them, trusting the person can scoop them up later at a lower value, return them to the moneylender and pocket the distinction. ... Be that as it may, in the event that you have a short position, there's no restriction to how a lot of cash you can lose if the offers rise.

    Shorting, or short-selling, is when an investor borrows shares and immediately sells them, hoping he or she can scoop them up later at a lower price, return them to the lender and pocket the difference. But shorting is much riskier than buying stocks, or what's known as taking a long position.
