Don't know about the others, but Siegel is just a complete boob.

This is worth 2 and 20??  What a load of crap--all those fucks just rode the credit expansion of the last 30 years.

Let's see their track records, when the secular bear market in everything really gets a head of steam behind it...

I think Jamie Dinan, York Capital: Bearish on Banks has it right.

Has Jermey Siegal every NOT said the market is going up next year by 12%-15%?


Siegal's outlook in Jan 2008.

I believe that the stock market will do better in 2008 than it did in 2007, when it chalked up a 5.5% return, the fifth year in a row that the market went up. Year-ahead forecasts for the market are notoriously difficult, but I believe that a 10% to 12% gain is possible, on the heels of a recovering financial sector. Financial stocks plummeted about 20% last year, and this was the reason why the market had a mediocre year. Outside of financials, the S&P 500 Index had double digit returns. A revival of financial stocks would spur good market gains this year.”

As soon as I saw that Siegal belonged to the Ivory Tower aka "theory universe" I knew whatever he said next would be totally retarded. I was proven right.

It's nit-picking, but Maverick is based in Dallas.  Ainslie has had a rough year or two as well if I remember correctly.

     May 12 (Bloomberg) -- Eric Sprott, chief executive officer
of Toronto’s Sprott Asset Management LP, said U.S. savers
eventually will pull their money out of banks that are carrying
too much leverage on their balance sheets.
     “If you have a fear of a banking system, you go to gold,”
Sprott said today at the SALT, or SkyBridge Alternatives,
Conference, in Las Vegas. “The dominoes are starting to fall.”
     Savers in Ireland and Greece are already fleeing from
banks, he said.

So glad you did not list Gordon Brown

  • Steven A. Cohen, the billionaire founder of hedge fund SAC Capital Advisors LP, said last week’s selloff in commodity markets makes this a good time to buy stock in energy companies.
  • Energy is “an interesting sector,” he said, speaking to a packed room with 1,750 seating capacity. “I think that energy stocks are discounting oil prices much lower than where we are trading today.”

OR, this is a REALLY good time to short oil.

Anyone who listens to or thinks Siegel has a valid opinion on anything is just about as cluess and idiotic as he is.  I'm not so sure how much Cohen's worth as well, but apparently a bunch of people in Vegas seem to think these guys are worth listening to over a lap dance and a shake of the dice at the craps table which in my opinion would yield a better ROI.

Say what you want, but Cohen's track record speaks for itself.  Up 30% a year on average with one down year.  Hell, I'd take that in a heartbeat.

30% a year puts Madoff to shame.  But alas, too much juice...  Little Stevie's got TBTF

OK back to the Article. Houses and Energy. Am I on the epiphamal path?

Hahaha....temperamentally riddled with sound deserves immediate entrance into the Smithsonian

My fave:

"Either the Democrats and Republicans will get together or the markets will force a solution on them"....[thinks deficit is....] "easily fixable"

These "Idjuts" would hope you never seek out the avg. life span or success/survivability rates of most hedge fund managers
