Dan David is the founder of Wolfpack Research, a short-biased firm that goes to great lengths to meticulously understand the business operations, technical aspects and financials of listed companies.

When uncovering a disconnect between what a company announces to the market and what Wolfpack deems to be the truth, the firm may build a short position and publish their findings in a detailed research report (commonly regarded as short activism).

Dan also hosts the “I Hung Up On Warren Buffett” podcast and was featured as the lead protagonist in The China Hustle—a documentary about the key players who revealed egregious cases of fraud by Chinese companies that were listing on U.S. markets through the process of a reverse-merger.
