And Dan Loeb's Biggest October Loser Is...

Tyler Durden's picture


When the hits just keep on coming:

Of course, where Dan Loeb has been, thousands of 13-F clone chasers have boldly copycatted before. Which is why today's 2.5% drop (so far) in AAPL stock may well set off a margin call conflagration like no other seen in the past several months. Unless, of course, the CME decides to lower ES margin once again. Just becauase.

As for Loeb's winners:

  • Greek Government Bonds (now that the distressed buyback plan is off the table this will change soon)
  • Yahoo!
  • Murphy Oil
  • AIG
  • Dolphin Capital Investors

AAPL is getting hit, but gold is also getting pummeled.

Anyone who is not in apple is fuckin idiot.  Apple is the only company that has any real promise.  The majority of americans regularly purchase their products at Apple.  It's beyond a household name by now.  Microsoft cowers in a pathetic attempt to seem relevent.  Soon, all other companies will cease to exist, as Apple will eventually consume them in an orgyastic conglomeration of buying.  When the market collapses, Apple will bet the market short, make trillions with its hundreds of billions, and then proceed to purchase every company in the world.  It's stock will skyrocket to 1.5-1.8 trillion market capital.  At that point, Apple will begin training Americans to perform all of their shopping with the assistance of Apple geniuses, who will instruct them on how to spend their money. 

Moreover, Apple is a responsible company that fucks its workers to give its consumers what they want!  What more could an investor want?!?  Forget the muppets who are buying the Samsung!  Apple's technology was, and in the future, will continue to be cutting edge.  Apple's future belongs with the Standard Oils of tech companies, and you are all fools for selling your shares! 

I am recommending that anyone with any amount of money, invest everything they have on heavily leveraged apple calls.


(disclosure): Author is short 25 contracts of the NQ at the time of writing.



Edit: Gold @ 1650-ish.  ;D Market too, very soon.

Ongoing detailed legal analysis of Apple's bogus attempts to litigate vs innovate:

This is today's story, the site covers way back.  You need to know more than the MSM tells, like who is appealing and are they likely to succeed, based on fact, not spin.

Disclosure, short AAPL, and loving it.

Worse than that; Apple just lost the trademark to "iPhone" in Mexico:

Apple will be forced to share 40% of its Mexican revenue with the company it infringed: iFone.

Not like they had a legit claim to it in the first place.  It was an InfoGear trademark 10 years before Apple came along.

My simpleminded view of the whole thing is that if two companies are BOTH permitted to use the same "trademark" (those being Apple and Cisco), it's not really a valid trademark in the first place.

But hey, I don't have a PhD in IP law.

The margin calls will be launched AH and Crapple will lose another 1%. Probably trade down to $555/share AH.

Probably GLD. Hate to enlighten you, but thats not the kind of gold most speak of around here.

As a trader and paper humper, you fail to grasp what counter party risk is in the PM sector.

I guess when the failure comes and GLD and the COMEX blow up you'll get my point on "counter party risk".

I was obviously talking about the difference in holding physical.

Whats the correlation of GLD and the spot gold price? Do some research and talk to me. 

Also, I completely grasp what "counter party risk is in the PM sector." Let me guess, you believe that GLD is not backed up by PM and that when a SHTF moment occurs (which it won't) everyone holding GLD will be left holding their prospectus asking where there gold is?? 

Guess what, there is no Dow 1000 moment, EVER, so it doesn't really matter. I will take GLD anyday over physical because of its instant liquidity and no need storage. Clearly you haven't correctly studied any economy that has experienced hyperinflation before because none of them was ever considered "THE worlds reserve currency" prior to hyperinflation.

I have zero doubt that America will continue to be a world leader for many decades to come. 


A happy and successful "paper humper". 


P.S. If you ban me because you disagree with my comments, are you any better then the "tyrannical" government you say rules over you?
