Grant Williams: In Conversation with Marc Cohodes

Featuring Grant Williams

Real Vision’s new flagship interview series premieres, as famed short seller Marc Cohodes joins Grant Williams for a candid and emotionally raw interview. In the first in a series of extended discussions with successful investors, Grant asks Marc about his short selection process, the difficulty of managing emotions when embroiled in a fight and his current battles with a series of companies he believes to be fraudulent. Marc offers a vicious takedown of biotech company MiMedx, and shares a gut-wrenching story of losing money during 2008, despite being perfectly positioned. Filmed November 21, 2017 in California.

    Knaves and crooks and the fools that follow them. Every investor owes Marc Cohodes a thank you. Where were the auditors and why don’t they ever go to jail? Willful ignorance in spades. One determined skeptic sniffs out a hustle and yet the auditors somehow manage to whiff on the knuckleball that doesn’t flutter. Great stuff Grant & Marc.

    In contrast, while not naming names, there has been a certain recent series that sadly elicited the starkly opposite reaction.

    As a "greenhorn" in the industry, I cannot emphasize how much I learn and thoroughly enjoy, truly transparent, no bullshit interviews like this one on Real Vision. As Grant mentioned, I acknowledge that I do not have a special skill set to be as successful as a short seller. However, it is beyond refreshing to see someone like Marc who is loyal to his morals and publicly acknowledges the realities of the industry that a lot of people are scared to do on platforms such as this or deny to acknowledge entirely. Interviews like this are the education/lessons you can never (and will never) be able to learn in a classroom. The boot-on-the-ground slap of reality that I am thankful to hear at such an early phase of my career. For that, I am grateful.

    Marc - I want to thank you for being a figure that young professional can aspire to be - someone who is true to themselves and doesn't sell their souls to the devil for success - and flips the bird to anyone who tries to attack that. Someone who preaches and takes “extreme ownership” of all aspect of life even when it is so easy and unpopular to do so. Hats off to you Marc (and Real Vision) as I know this interview will be one I reference continuously throughout my own career.

    Thanks to RV and Marc for doing this. Often good trading is described as being unemotional and detached. I've never seen a trader / investor who is so passionate and emotional about what he is doing. That's truly inspirational.

    You may not have THAT skill set Grant, but you have another which is in every way just as effective and noteworthy!
    This guy is the Real Deal and one bad Whammer Jammer....and he got taken down in 2008 by what I can only assume were the “Powers that Be”.
    Ah....Green Mountain Coffee....trying to explain to my wife why I seemed to be so “Blue” that day....everything going just Peachy and then...and then...over the airways...Coca Cola gets involved and “there she blows” up up and away....with the toughest part being that I actually knew that the GM guy was a former Coca Cola executive...just sort of slipped my mind I guess....

    I am very grateful to Marc for the information I learned from this interview. Marc and other interviewers deserve more respect in the comment section. I would like to suggest that a General Comment Section be linked from the Interview Comments to discuss issues like language used in an interview and language norms in the comments. This will focus interview comments toward financial comments and away from personal comments. I would also suggest that RV should retain and use the right to delete inappropriate comments from any interview comments. DLS

    Looking in as an observer I have to say that this interview has raised the barrier with what RV are capable of. Grant has nailed his interviewing techniques (he has always been good) but the way he is able to interact and flow made this discussion superb, so nice one Grant.
    Marc gave up a lot in this interview, and I cannot help think that if someone else had led this on then we would have not got so " deep".
    I am always interested in folk who have their own courage of convictions, and do the right thing when they know that the " bad guys" are at it with other folks money, and care nothing of the consequences.
    I think it was Hugh Hendry who once said that he could tell the Emperor he had no clothes! I think Marc has taken that a little further now, and has just included the Emperors whole family.
    Absolutely nailed this guys, Thank you.

    This is a fantastic, well executed and ungimmicky interview of the first order. Bravo! I was shocked and touched to hear about the "house rules rape" incident. This is why short selling isn't for me. As Dan Drew said "He who sells what isn't his'n, must buy it back or go to prison." I prefer to hold longs. As Michael Green said in his first interview on RV, there is always a bull market in something. It doesn't have to be FB at 200. There could be a bull market in Vix, Ether, gold, default protection or the Swissie. There are even puts on MDXG..

    Dear Americans, the correct term is "I COULDN'T care less" In that, you care so little about the topic that it's impossible to care less about it.....so you "couldn't care less". The term "I could care less" is idiotic. If you could care less........well think think about it.....it's a moronic thing to say.

    So nice to see someone with his passion be brutally honest about his mistakes.
    The investment world would be so much better if he ran the SEC, but we all know that would never happen.
    I wish you had asked him if he would ever deal with Goldmans again.
    I really enjoyed your interview and am curious what else was discussed that didn’t make it into the interview.

    This was the kind of thing that I want from Realvision. I don’t care about fancy editing, strange camera angles, makeup, wardrobes, rapid segues. I hugely appreciated Grant’s applied curiosity in the unfolding of Marc’s story.
    And I am greedy. I did an online search and found the following on youtube: “This Home Capital story didn't make it into the final cut of the Marc Cohodes interview on Real Vision, so you'll sure as hell want to see what did. Listen to Marc Cohodes on Real Vision and become a better investor: http://rvtv.io/2oiHI2f .” -- very worth watching, leaving me with the question of why it was not included in the version posted on Realvision. I am not the first person to suggest that maybe it would be useful to post two versions – one with the editing to focus on the points deemed most valuable and a second with minimal or no editing.
    And I am quibbling; this was excellent.

    I fully agree with David S's take on the Goldman story. It is a cautionary tale that has more future relevance than a historical lesson. What were the "house rules" that allowed Goldman (GS) to unilaterally change the rules of the game over a weekend to make an immediate margin call of 700 million? What was the specific language in their account agreement that allowed this to happen? This is relevant because when the next financial crisis comes, and come it will, the "vampire squids" of the world will again claim the right to change the margin requirements from 30% to 70% without written notice and without time to cure the "default" and raise the money? I would assume that Marc no longer does business with GS and further does not sign the standard boilerplate account agreement offered by financial firms that allowed a travesty like this to happen?

    Goldman story was staggering. It shows the intermediary counterparty risk - Goldman - was worse than the Fed risk. Does Marc use Goldman now, if not when did he close his accounts. Similar to the Stephen Diggle interview discussing counterparty risk and how hard it was to get his firm's money in the big meltdown. Being right is only the beginning. DLS

    UNBELIEVEABLE !!! The best 1 hr 22 spent watching anything this year, by far. Grant, congratulations on an amazing production and interview! Instantly a RealVision classic. That truly was the treat worth waiting for the past few weeks. Marc, thank you so much for your candid interview and insight into how you view your approach to investing. I have viewed your Grant's presentations - really enjoyed them - but loved and appreciated the approach you took with this conversation. I will remember the "lifeguard approach" for life, no doubt. Sharing what happened to your firm in 2008 was truly touching and proof positive that the "smart money" doesn't always win. I have been short $MDXG right alongside you and may have to double up my position on Monday. As a 41 year old shortseller who called it right on $SUNE but painfully missed out on the big money, I thank you both for this outstanding conversation. You are an inspiration for shortselling generations to come - the genetic mutation is alive and well! Thank you!

    RVTV should probably institute NSFW or E(xplicit) tagging on content like this - I can imagine some viewers frantically reaching for the mute button in the office or in the car. Perhaps that's where the down votes came from?

    What an interesting life/ career Marc has had.
    Seems like an authentic person with a ton of integrity and great insight.
    I love guys like this, from 'the street' and educated by 'the street' (either Wall or the street at large).
    Calls a spade a shovel and won't back down from a nice old dust up.
    I appreciated Marcs honesty and genuine emotion during the conversation.
    Short selling is a lonely endeavour, even when you're right, no one thanks you (really)...
    We can learn a lot from fantastic characters like this and the experiences that they share.
    Keep them coming Grant / RVTV... this is why we subscribe!

    Simply incredible. Brutal honesty and the ability to control his emotions in dire situations is remarkable. Grant comes up with another stunnin piece. Cheers mate.
