Then began a slow-motion version of a short seller’s nightmare. Over the next 36 months, no matter what damaging revelations surfaced—subpoenas, missed earnings estimates, or more evidence of fraud—PolyMedica’s shares continued to rise. The company’s CEO, Steven Lee, resigned without explanation. The stock hit $24. A federal study found abuses in the test kit industry.

Today, Asensio won’t disclose the terms of the settlement. Evergreen CEO Mark Sexton was fired the next month, and the company filed for bankruptcy liquidation in January 2012, its K-Fuel dreams up in smoke.

Though he doesn’t like to talk about it, short selling has made Asensio wealthy; he keeps an apartment on Manhattan’s eastside and a luxury apartment in Miami, and dines at the finest steakhouses. He collects the artwork of contemporary Cuban artists like Alexis Leyva Machado and when in South Florida zips around on a classic 1979 BMW R65 motorcycle.
