Room on your team for 1 more?  We all knew he would be dumping stock after that interview , lying asshole that he is. 

Id like someone to remind him about his claim that at s+p 1K he will go "all in"

Because when we are back at s+p 1k , my bet is he will be dumping stock with shit running down the inside of his fat thighs like every other momo chasing sheep in the market whos suddenly lost their nerve.

Heh, Tepper is obviously one of the "old school" investors.

Too many stocks.

Too much diversification.

He's probably getting run over by the younger, nimbler ones who have their entire stash in just 5 stocks:

You need to start listening to Cramerica for your investment strategy:


Earlier today I calculated the average P/E for those stocks is a little over 70.

Mmm...I love value.

I still don't get cmg. 240 a share for high end fast food. At least mcd and yum have diversification outside of north america and some hedging in commodity prices.

As sanford used to say "and beans and disease to you!"

Yep, and margins less than yum and a pe of twice it.

Commodity prices will crush it since its mostly in the USA and Canada,

The market cap of cmg puts each leased storefront fastfood restaurant at a value of $7,000,000.00.  You gotta sling a lot of burritos to make that fad business pencil.

David Tepper does not strike me as being very smart, nor trustworthy.  His interview was like a frat-boy talking smack. "Hey, I've got the world by the balls. Follow me boys."

That is exactly who and what Tepper is.  Search him, and it isn't hard to find the opinion trail.

The guy is typical scum, part of the never ending criminal syndicate known as Wall Street.

I remember watching that asshole and while being impressed by his record, couldn't help but wonder if he wasn't the expert in reading a credit induced bubble bull run economy that was basically dead at the date of his call.  Anybody right that long thats still not only swingin for the fence....but calling it.....is gonna go down hard.  And just like those fickle fans who love and hate you within the span of a pitch, his "loyal" investors will bail on him in even less time.  I remember watching him though....good performance.  The negative futures just fucking melted up as he spoke.  The heady, gregarious attitude oozed out of my tv speakers - I was pissed and calmed (knew his brand of bullshit) all at the same time.

Tepper made his 2009 money off inside information, the legal kind - government inside. His old interview, he says it would have been illegal for the gov to nationalize the banks - WRONG. He bullshitted and gave them a bunch a reasons he was so sure...

The real reason? Likely a few phone calls.

I didn't think Georgia had any banks left.  I'm going to check Ancestry.com to see if there was a General Sherman in Sheila Bair's background.
