The trend line is up, and certain unscrupulous execs feel like this would be a good time to embellish facts, make lofty assumptions, and trick investors into investing in their company. You've done your due diligence. Your short position research is sound and you've already executed your short thesis. Perhaps you found an accounting "stretch" in their books. Perhaps you've seen their customer base is eroding, or you see their competitors beating them and their model is unsustainable. Convince us of your short thesis; we will put skin in the game, go short as well, and shine a light on our target to the investment community. We will get the truth out!
The market could care less about fair market value. The market could care less about lofty P/E ratios. The market could care less about your thesis. What market participants care about is making money. So if your short thesis has some information in their that can truly harm their future prospects of making money, then you may have a hot hand. Examples include accounting fraud, untruthful claims, exaggerated prospects etc. If you don't have a strong short thesis, in this bull market, then all we can say is good luck to you!
Fib Line is run by a law school drop out coder (with a MBA) that started one of the pioneering firms in the field of search engine optimization in November of 1994. He started trading stocks in 1997, but it wasn't until mid-2017 that he completed his nearly 65,000 lines of code and began trading the Spoo (S&P 500 futures) algorithmically. This former computer science major loves the markets, loves the online world, and hates liars. After being burned by a Chinese company ($NQ), he decided to go after companies that essentially lie to investors and expose them. He is a contributor on Seeking Alpha and has a variety of ways to lawfully and ethically influence investors. As a passionate and successful Spoo (E-mini S&P 500 futures) trader who has backtested his trading system for up to 10 years to demonstrate it has a 550+% ROI, a 79+% win rate, and an average win that is 3.29X the average loss.

There's a lot of misconception about short sellers. However, the truth is, if it weren't for short sellers, certain unscrupulous companies would take everyone they can to the cleaners. Short sellers are an asset to the market.
Our service is exclusively available for hedge funds, as quite honestly we charge high prices, and the only way the numbers make sense is there is a large short position that we are propagating.
The principal of Fib Line takes all calls. However, to save everyone time, if your whole short thesis is based solely on the "fundamentals" argument, unfortunately there's not much to go on (in this market)...Sorry.
