It's Official: T1 Is Not T2; Tilson Liquidates To Buy More Of The Same

Tyler Durden's picture

As we warned yesterday, the curse of the inverse correlation between CNBC appearances and investment performance has struck once again. The rumor is true as everyone's favorite knife-catching, Buffett-following, leveraged beta fund manager Whitney Tilson has split from his 'colleague' Glenn Tongue who has gone off to run his own 'unencumbered' fund. As the full letter below (h/t DealBreaker) explains, he couldn't be more optimistic about T2's future (so this is a good thing then?) and have no fear since he sees 'a target rich environment' as he has already picked up some 'low hanging fruit'. We wait with bated breath for the next letter...


"even if there had been no redemptions (and I knew this would be the case in advance), I would have acted similarly because, as I resume the role of sole portfolio manager, it’s critical that I rebuild the portfolio from scratch and truly “own” the ideas."

Someone pays 2/20 to this Tilson/whomever guy to buy Berkshire?

I look forward to taking the other side of his trades. It's  tough to choose who I'm going to bet against , him or Goldman.

Has anyone on here actually had a conversation with a neighbor that went something like "hey, just a heads up, if the shit hits the fan we gotta stick together"?

Just curious if anyone has actually had that type of talk and how did it go over.

Yes, actually.. Several of my friends and others have started an S.O.C.

My Obama fan neighbor has heard me talk about sticking together, as the local community will be key.  Now he always mockingly asks me, "How's the bug out bag, hybrid seeds, and gold treating you.  Oh yeah and the guns?"

I won;t be working with him much.

With family yes, my neighbors are lesbos and they believe Obama has saved the world

You said they were hot though, right?

My neighbors are all good people but they are all older and my kids adopted them as grandparents. So we don't have those conversations, most of them are concerned about what is going on but that's as far it goes. Having said that I do have a local group with whom I associate with that plan on sticking together.

I have given up talking to my firends and neighbours about this crap, no one gives a damn.  We got Alberta oil, nothing can happen here, Real Estate always goes up.  I just get stupid weird looks now, so I don't bother.  I hope to be out of town when all goes down........


At the moment Im looking to get to Vancouver Island with the wife (parents already moved there).

Well some underwriting bullshit banks made a lot of money today when 5 Below went public and jumped 60% at the open.

When I first saw Five Below my stock scam bullshit meter went off the charts. Some hedge fund and venture capital firm trying to jump on the dollar store expansion bandwagon. I expect Five Below to be bankrupt and out of business within the year.

All you had to do was short oil, then long oil at its lows.  Simply unfuckingbelievable how bad you have to be at this to lose faster than the S&P.  Full disclosure:  short oil brah


See thing is, when everyone expects a collapse, expect a rise, when everything looks great, expect a collapse.

Did anyone ever guess to think that the black swan that tanks a bunch of people is the absence of the expectation of a black swan?  Taleb even told you this.  Black swans can also be the lack of said expected event.
