So Who Leaked The Heinz Deal?

Tyler Durden's picture

Just a purely accidental modest to quite modest increase in the Heinz June $65 call open interest yesterday, and an even more accidental $1.5 million profit in one day? Surely the new Morgan Stanely head of the SEC will get right on it, and market "credibility" will be preserved. At least Buffett's DOJ-immune rating agency Moody's will rate the JPM's committed financing for the HNZ takeover AAAA++++.

So Who Leaked The Heinz Deal?


TruthInSunshine's picture

John Kerry pushed this deal as a hard bargain with Buffett, but Warren "Let's Anally Rape The Taxpayers MOAR, amIright Charlie Munger?" Buffett did manage to get a 2,500 year exclusive ketchup supplier to the U.S. Government & Military contract in exchange for the share premium paid.

Dude, you gotta pay to play...haven't you learned anything about crony capitalism in the last 5 years?

I am sure the SEC will get right on it..

Hey a big fat pink pig just flew past my window....

GetZeeGold's picture



Heresy to the highest!

EscapeKey's picture

But this time I'm pretty sure TIMMY DIDN'T DO IT!!

How about 8:30 AM EST GOLD take down on daily basis?
Look at the chart now! F*cking Crooks!!!

Confundido's picture

You're wrong, the take down is at 8:20am

fomcy's picture

yeah, time is various between 8.15AM-8.45AM, Ones Goldman And Morgan
manipulation squad gets to the office.

Doña K's picture

Yea! 7:20 central when the Chicago exchange opens up. I have been watching it. Jump on it and they will prohibit the masses on extended trading. Problem is that the spreads are horrendous and if turns on you.....

Before they banned spot trading similar to FX I made pretty penny on these patterns. Then one day, I mentioned something here on ZH and two days later boom. No more plebes allowed.

Stay out of the markets fellows, let them cannibalize each other.

Just think, if it wasn't for all these regular $5, $10, $15, $20 price knock-downs on gold just imagine where the price would be today. Probably north of $3,000.00

I buy phys early in the morning.  Just ordered some @ 1643.  I think Sinclair is right about the Gld manipulation being over in March, we'll see.  Do you live in New Mexico?  I only knew one other Doña.

Harbanger's picture

Just got smacked down to 1642, I should have stayed in bed.

Sudden Debt's picture

Yeah... just had a friend calling me saying "Look Gold is going back up"...


and it went down...

flacon's picture

WOW! You should have waited until 8:31 to post.... check the price now.....

That's actually an in-your-face message; "What can you do about dudes? We rule the world."

I'm guessing John Kerry had a Certificate of Divestiture for this.

Has anyone seen Martha Stewart lately?

Oh ya, Martha- the last person dumb enough to get caught.....

VonManstein's picture

Sudden Debt's picture

If I had a big, juicy dog turd superglued to my face, just under the nose, like a mustache, but dripping and with all flies and stuff on it...I reckon I would notice.

Those super-slueths at the (insert TLA for any government watchdog e.g. SEC, FSA, CFTC)...not so much...

2.5 times average daily volume on the shares......businees as usual.

fonzannoon's picture

Hey futures were down. They will do anythig these days to ramp them.

Whiteshadowmovement's picture

Hey fonz, im taking a page outta your book today and starting a small position on TWC based on that selling pressure after the earnings mis being exhausted and I actually think theres some decent value here at these levels- I actually only focus almost exclusively on small and mid-caps but its a decent risk/reward setup at this point i think

Sudden Debt's picture

Reminds me of the days a American company took us over.

All senior staff had to sign a document that it's forbidden to trade the company stock with inside info....

I'm sure that CNBS will be all over this.

just goes to show : buying a State secretary's company ensures you full "#1 crony capitalist" - preferred DC lobbyist - status for the rest of the incumbency.

Good investment Warren, now Washington will sing your song all along.

Watch Buffet's net worth INCREASE by leaps and bounds; a true financial Oscar winner!

He will out Pistorius Pistorius; luckily for him he has no girl friend; and more so for her!
