1 Reason This Stock Crashed Hard Recently

David Einhorn sent shars of Chipotle sharply lower following his presentation at the Value Investors Conference, where he suggested shorting shares of the premium-priced buritto company. Given his past track record of successful shorts, he's not the guy you want to bet against. 

He was also careful to note that Chipotle isn't a poorly managed company, simply that he sees increasing pressure from Yum! Brands and thinks Chipotle's premium valuation doesn't justify the risk.
