The Evolution Of Mark Cuban: From "No Doubt The Market Tanks" To "[Trump's] A Big Plus For The Overall Economy"

Tyler Durden's picture

It has been an 'evolutionary' year for billionaire Mark Cuban as his perspective has shifted from Trump-is-smart, "I'd be his VP" to Trump terror, "no doubt the market tanks," to acceptance to reality...

2/16/2016 - I think Trump is smart. I'd be Donald Trump's VP as long as he said he's listen to me in everything I said we'd be okay.

9/6/2016 - In the event that @realDonaldTrump wins, I have no doubt in my mind that the market tanks. If the polls look like there's a decent chance that Donald could win, I'll put a huge hedge on that's over 100% of my equity positions... that protects me just in case he wins.

11/1/2016 If Trump wins I'm already hedged. My hedge is up a little bit this week because the markets have been down multiple days in a row. I put on the biggest hedge I've ever put on against all my equities and interest-bearing bonds simply because of what I just said. You know, this is not like Brexit where oh, my goodness, there's a big reaction, big selloff and then a big bounce back and things just trickle down.


11/9/2016 - We all need to give President-Elect Trump a chance. Support the good. Lobby against what we disagree on. No one is bigger than us all.

And now today...1/23/2017 - I think the discussed economic programs are potentially a big plus for public companies and the overall economy.

As The Wall Street Journal reports, Mark Cuban is now among those who think the Trump administration could be boon to the economy and markets.

The key word: could.


The Dallas Mavericks owner and entrepreneur is “playing it by ear” when it comes to the effect President Donald Trump’s policies will have on the stock market. But he thinks there’s possible upside.


“I think the discussed economic programs are potentially a big plus for public companies and the overall economy,” Mr. Cuban said in an e-mail Monday morning.


The potential policies Mr. Cuban is optimistic about: corporate tax cuts; getting rid of the “friction” for small businesses; and reducing and simplifying administrative activities.


The big question marks, though, are whether the Mr. Trump’s policies actually get passed, and whether his communication tactics, “create social issues that overwhelm the economic upside.”


“The devil is in the details,” Mr. Cuban said. “We will see what actually happens.”

So, how is he investing in this new era? As he always does, he said: He’s long the stock market but hedged against “something catastrophic.” He declined to discuss further.

I looked up 'asshat' in the online dictionary. There was a picture of Mark Cuban.

Swear to God.

Hope he took the bath that I previously said I hoped he'd take along with Soros and his 1- Bill loss.

But however much of a bath He and Soros took, it wasn't enough, ' cause they're still around...

I'm a Dallasite-and I already have. Despite my great admiration for Dirk  - I root against the Mavs every game-because of Cuban. He needs to sell the team.

There is a piece of information missing here as to why Cuban became unhinged by Trump.

It will all become clear - perhaps he, too, was a Epstein pedo island visitor with many in Hillary's group of operatives.

Oldwood's picture

He is simply a weak gambler who always bets on the loser. He was talking his book because he believed he had more to gain from Hillary than Trump. Hillary was status quo for his investments, whereas Trump represented change...scary change for a lucky loser like Cuban.

Savyindallas's picture

I assume you mean that Cuban was an Epstein pedo patron   -  not trump.

Stopped watching Shark Tank due to his politics.  Buy 30% of my asshole for $200k, Mark, there's plenty of "Revenue Stream" to keep you happy!

'Milk milk lemonade. Around the corner fudge is made.'

But I decided not to.

Every cry baby better get on board...this ship has set sail....and we WILL leave you. We welcome you...but if you stick to that horseshit snowflake narrative, you will melt and/or the TRUMP train will crush you.  Come over to the correct side now.   Every day I think TRUMP is going to set something on fire(In a good way).  I love it.  My Dem/Lib having a shit fit.  I also think that TRUMP loves being on TV and he LOVES being in every news cycle.  So friends...this is NOT going to end.  Every day...on and he said. You are going to get sick of winning.

He was totally for Killary! Month after month! I soooo wanted to punch his vomit spewing mouth. Fuck Shark Tank and fuck you Cuban.

It really shows his colors now that his nose is firmly between Trumps butt cheeks.

Anybody remember the name of that company Yahoo stupidly bought off Cuban to make him a billionaire?

Peacefulwarrior's picture the technology was limited at best but since he planted a flag the IPO was completely overvalued. Good timing was always his best play. But yes if we did not see or hear from Mark Cuban for another 20 years, it would still be too soon.
