Like BX - will likely continue with excellent growth. I like that it is a fairly small company in terms of market cap, below 12 billion. Plenty of room to move up. It may not double in price by year end, but it definitely looks more attractive to me than say GS or BAC. Surprised the drop in price right now after yesterday, but no big deal.
In the last couple of weeks, BX has started monetizing investments. Pinnacle Foods and Sea World are just the start. Take a look at where they trade and how much stock BX still has in these companies. If someone is trading around options expiration, that will go away and fundamentals will prevail. I really do not know why anyone would short this company, considering what is happening. I thought shorts were smart?
