With your head down in the pig bin,

Pig stain on your fat chin.

Suspicious activity? LOL, all I saw was sunny activity:,jaso,ldk,sol,solf,stp,tsl,yge

Keep buying these solars when they sell off huge like last week. Any moves below 50 or 200 day m.a. is a buy on solars. Big hedgies manipulate them and accumulate them. Call me a liar, a retard, whatever other names but this will be the hot sector of 2010. :)

I have yet to respond to any of your posts, but I would like to communicate to you the fact that your missives are not wasted here at ZH. While you might receive a healthy share of criticism, you stalwartly stand by your prognostications, and you don't attempt revisionist history when you've missed a call. For the record, I'm with your forecast through mid-winter. After that, I'll reevaluate, as I don't foresee "green shoots" making it through what is likely to be a very harsh winter.

Best of luck to you, and I'm watching your solar calls. You might be on to something big barring some sort of systemic meltdown (the likelihood of which I will abstain from asserting).

Thanks Anon# 205671,

It always bugs me when analysts, pundits, traders or portfolio managers tout this or that but never tell you where they are investing their own money. If I am wrong, I am wrong, but at least you can't accuse me of hoarding my ideas all to myself or hiding when I'm wrong.

I try to share as much as possible with all of you. For example, I beefed up a previous post on hot hedge fund trades for 2010, and added a few excellent funds to my previous list. You can skim through their quarterly filings to get ideas of what they are buying or selling (even if data is lagged). I like to see where they are adding, and I don't just look at solars. I look at tech, semis, energy, materials, medical devices and various other sectors.

Just because I have been opportunistically accumulating solars over the past year (every time time they get whacked hard, I accumulate more), it doesn't mean that I am right. I could be dead wrong. But that is a bet I'm willing to make with my own money. I have nobody to answer to but myself. Each individual should know themselves and what they're willing to risk.

It takes nerves of steel to invest in solars. If you puke every time the market goes down, forget about solars. There are plenty of other stocks out there that the top hedge funds are buying (for example, David Einhorn of Greenlight Capital has a big position in Pfizer).

The point is not whether or not you agree with my market views or sector picks. Start educating yourself, learn to think for yourself and don't listen to what the claptraps on CNBC are telling you. Watch what the top funds are actually buying & selling and think about the longer-term trends.

Traders on ZH are great providing you with short-term insight but traders are terrible at managing big funds. In most cases, their strategies are not scalable so they cannot manage big money. Only top hedgies/ CTAs can do that and deliver consistent alpha.

I've rambled enough...Cheers.

I will have to give you credit Leo , you are almost a lone wolf on these pages and  it takes guts to break with the pack but I will have to respectfully disagree with you about the solar thingy although it may be promising in some limited areas

But then again where I come from the presence of a  luminous disk in the sky is a almost mythical phenomena so I could be missing something.

It's one thing to tell us where to invest now or that we should invest now. However, your enthusiastic tone is reminiscent to the go go bulls days in the last two bubbles.

I for one, am out of the market all together as almost everyone on this blog suspects either foul play or another bubble. Unless you are a wall street insider and know when the reversals occur, you are toast.

We therefore, believe that the only thing anyone can advise here is caution. Perhaps suggesting a trick trade here or there or pointing to an arbitrage play, is okay. Anything else is pure gambling.

This market is unpredictable.

Leo Kolivakis's picture

Oracle of Kypseli,

I understand your skepticism but many of you still don't understand that the Fed and other central bankers will do everything in the power to reignite an asset bubble even if it means risking inflation down the road. This may work or it may fail but for them and the financial oligarchs that pull their strings, deflation is simply not an option.

The broad liquidity rally that we saw in 2009 will become more localized in 2010. A few sectors will benefit, and some a lot more than others. Is this gambling? I am not gambling but betting that alternative energy will enjoy a long secular bull run. If I'm wrong, I will live with the losses.

And I agree with you that arbitrage strategies will become increasingly important in these markets. Finally, I am not a perma bull. Ask any of my former employers and my close friends. I made Prechter look like Cramer back in 2005, 2006 and 2007.

But right now, it's not about Black Swan events but about Black Sloth events. Central banks are on guard for any possible systemic risk, so that's not what preoccupies me.

I agree, but missing is any appreciation for the fact that the political environment is getting very hostile to bail outs and monetization, and that is a significant risk. The fact is that the bought politicians expect the financial oligarchs will get them reelected. And when it appears that the financial oligarchs and their captured Fed are driving over an electoral cliff, the politicos resist and the game gets more complex.

I expect that we get a downdraft into late summer, the bottom of the conventional four year cycle.

In the meantime I am grateful to you for keeping us informed about the most recent momentum fads. You are full of shorting ideas. So please continue posting. If crude continues its swan dive and NG goes down to development costs of 4.50 per mcf, then your solars should be delicious toast over the next few months.

We shall see!!

Leo Kolivakis's picture

Be careful when shorting solars as you have to be very good to catch the selloffs. And it's not just about oil. The link between crude/NG & solars already started to break, and I expect it to fully decouple in the year ahead.

Solars are the "leadership" group on the way down the last couple weeks, no doubt about that.

big short interest  in the solars

Leo Kolivakis's picture

Big short interest is all part of the blatant manipulation. They'll get squeezed and the stocks will skyrocket higher.

CSIQ and TSL are headed to $15, the shorts will like that.

Leo, Will you kindly STFU already? You add neither
depth of insight nor intelligent commentary. Please
stop, I get stupider everytime I read your stuff (and
that's saying something, right there boy).

Leo Kolivakis's picture

You and the rest of the ZH fleas are dumb as nails. Tell mommy to stop breastfeeding you already! Read my new comment above and learn from what I am sharing with you, ya dingbats!

Mr. Anonymous's picture

For a 'smart guy', you sure have a hard time figuring things.

Nobody likes you, Leo.  Beat it.  You're starting to attract flies.

Leo Kolivakis's picture

For the record, all you ZH fleas taking anonymous swipes at me are either the very pension pussies I've castigated on my blog or the investment bankers with their heads up their asses. Either way, I'll beat it when I want to leave. Capiche?

Mr. Anonymous's picture

Yeah, I heard you beat it.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

solar only works as long as the Govt keeps increasing tax credits. Germany just announced a cut back in tax credits. At some point this year, solar stocks will implode. Inflate or die...thats the question, what's the answer??

Leo Kolivakis's picture

Solars will implode this year? Don't be so quick to make that call. Watch the earnings and the outlook going forward. The cuts in subsidies is OLD news; everyone expected it, but the big hedgies used this news to manipulate & accumulate more.

Anonymous's picture

leo i have been following you for a while because of my interest in solar, not solar stocks. i hope this industry does not get exploited. i am getting a certificate in sustainability management and the local solar company came and talked about investing in long term health of the environment. i find it a really exciting green technology. i would like to think of greening people as well as buildings. he said they are buying their panels from all around the world and the packaging is really recyclable too! you should believe in the science and technology of it as well as making money. peace.

Anonymous's picture

I am in the business and can tell you unless there is some new propietary breakthroughs margins are getting squeezed just like the memory chip makers of old. Retail margins for the installation companies makes it almost a sure bet loser.

Customers are getting smarter about the economics of these deals and are starting to push back hard on the money guys reducing their ROI's.

States are broke and are unlikely to expand incentives, and the new CA law is being challanged and diluted by the utinilty companies.

Finally, it will be interested to see if the Chinese Solar companies honor their panel workmanship and performance warranties. We won't touch them, because if they do not pay up, we have to. Try suing a Chinese importer.

"As my buddy Rasputin puts it, its "Inflate or Die".

Is Obama and Congress dumb enough throw out Bernanke and watch the economy implode and trillions of dollars of toxic trash on the Fed's balance sheet get blowtorched??"

They're dumb but they really don't have any other choice. How the hell are any debts getting paid in a massive deflationary depression? Right, they won't get paid.

Deflationary depression means roll over and play dead.

As soon as that hits, the banks might as well close all their shops.

No money going out, no money coming in. No bills getting paid. No mortgages getting paid, no credit cards getting paid. No tax revenues, no welfare cheques. No nothing. Nada, end of story.

That's what deflationary depression means imo.

If Congress fucks with the people, the people will simply roll over and play dead.

take a look at ZION a/h... moon shot.  unreal.

deadhead's picture

that thing has been gamed like a 2 dollar whore of late.  though i'm not familiar with their balance sheet issues as i don't follow them, absolutely nobody thinks ZION will make a profit throughout 2010.

some of these regional bank stock prices are going to come down very, very hard in my view.

Oso's picture

ya, same is true for most regionals (RF, SNV, etc).  Not profitable, gapping wholes in their balance sheets, and somehow, even their NIMs have decreased despite record yc steepness.

but management says, "we think worst is behind us" and BAM, to the moon.  its impossible to be short, but i can_NOT justify being long (as is the case with most of the market).

i long for the days where exogenous events seemed to happen near daily ;)

Virtually 100% of all technicians this weekend were harping on the clear and obvious "technical breakdown".  Yet I find this to be odd when only last Tuesday we made new highs for the move.


There was a breakdown. It doesn't matter whether we made a new high on Tuesday or not. It was what happened after Tuesday that mattered. It may or may not pan out, of course.

  Todays bounce sure did not pan much.... 50% lighter volume and gave up most of the gains by the close.

Mr. Bear is just rubbing his eyes and thinking of coming out of hibernation.

Once he is awake, he will be very hungry.  Don't want to be one of those salmon flopping around once he steps to the riverbank.

More meat Andy.

This is a depression. Need meat.

Bear is hungry.

You're a good man, Andy, a real good man. Thanks for picking up the slack.

That's nice but why don't you post a topless pic that's artistic and celebrates beauty? Trashy pics have their place but I think we can handle some art here and there. As for me, I find this more inspiring, but most of you may not "get it".

and speaking of trash... RINO couldn't catch a bid today. that's a ten day slide from 32 to 21, maybe other china stocks next?
