Daniel Bustamante is the founder and CIO of Bustamante & Co. a multi-strat money investment management firm. He has been featured in Bloomberg, Arizona Business Journal, Business Insider, Yahoo! Finance, Forbes, Seeking Alpha, and other publications over his career on Wall Street. Most notably, he became one of the first to call for Carvana to trade to $0 in February 2022 when the stock was trading at $160 a share. 

While not an active short seller he did learn ‘deep short’ research analysis while working for a firm earlier in his career that allowed him to understand the depths of corporate fraud, accounting irregularities and the complexities of executing on short selling. 

The research, among other market calls, was published in his weekly LongVol Report®
