Get feedback on your stock ideas

I'm on a mini-vacation and am bored. PM me your stock ideas and I'll give you feedback. Can do macro, long, or short. Feedback will be private (please don't share publicly) and will be similar to what I give my analysts. 

No length requirement but do explain your thought process. 

The general structure is to write a summary, provide some supporting evidence (bullet points), a discussion about why you could be wrong, why you are right, and ended with a review of your assumptions. 

If you need help generating ideas, follow these formats: 

GDP outlook -> sector -> industry -> winner / loser 
Distressed sector -> market share winner / loser
Growth sector -> winner / loser

Ideas for potential catalysts: improving industry dynamics (input cost pressure abating, new technology increasing output/reducing costs), macro (pessimism, optimism), company specific (accelerating product/service adoption, spin out/carve out, viral marketing campaign, factory or production site shutdown, etc.).

are you going to be doing this type of thing again?  Am really interested in the public markets but I don't have a pitch ready and don't think I'll be able to make  detailed and thorough one by 5/20.

I noticed you often write extremely detailed comments about the industry. Are there any books you recommend to learn more? I'll be interning at one of the large MMs and want to learn how to track KPIs, develop variant views, call earnings, etc. Thank you!

Thanks for the recommendations. Is there a site that aggregates sellside reports? I currently use a database called Mergent Investext that my school provides to search for them. Just wondering if theres anything better I could do.
