Lauren Lyster & I See The iBubble Go iPop Once Those 10 Million MBS Trader Jobs Fail To Materialize As Bernanke Promised





Here is one of the best examples of financial reporting that I have seen on TV. As a matter of fact, the interviewees on the street gave far more credible input than the highly paid, so-called "experts" on those MSM outlets.

Presenting How Carl Icahn Accumulated A 7.5% Stake In Chesapeake In 18 Days, And His Letter To The CHK Board





Recall when Zero Hedge said two weeks ago that in the age of ZIRP, corporate balance sheets simply do not matter. The reason for that conclusion were of course the endless public debates over whether Chesapeake's massively overlevered capital structure would lead to its demise. Our view was that while balance sheets certainly matter in a normal market, one not dominated by central planning and endless hunger for yield, in the new ZIRP normal, none of the old school metrics of solvency, viability or even profitability matter. One person who appears to have agreed with our assessment, and put his money where his mouth is, or $775MM more specifically, is none other than legendary corporate raider Carl Icahn, who minutes ago announced that funds controlled by Icahn have raised their stake in CHK to 7.56%, making him the second biggest holder of the stock, and in a letter just sent to the CHK Board, in rather angry tones, demanded 2 board seats for his own representatives and 2 for Chesapeake's largest shareholder Southeastern Asset Management. Below we chart just how it is that beginning on April 19 at a price of $18.03, Icahn's funds accumulated over a period of 18 days, a total of 49.4 million shares of stock at what appears to be a Volume Weighted Average Cost of $15.70/share, meaning that as of the stock spike on this announcement he is currently in the money.
