    OT: Susan/QE/Jackson Hole

    Soros may be right on FRO, but big hedge fund investors and mutual fund managers have also missed horribly on some large positions that they own. For example:

    John Paulson, famous for betting against the subprime mortgages before the financial crisis, recently losts millions betting on Bank of America and certain small cap Chinese companies.

    Bill Miller, manager of certain Legg Mason mutual funds with a record of beating the S&P index for several years, was heavily invested in Freddie Mac and Countrywide and lost 60% of the value of his fund.

    Even Warren Buffett lost money on some investments.

    Many of these famed investors have good long-term track records, but they also have billions of dollars and so it doesn't matter to them if they pick a losing investment every now and then as the loss is miniscule compared to their overall wealth.

    Of course, every company has issues or more appropriately, risks, but not every company has the same kind of risks and the same degree. Since you depend solely on the opinions of Soros, you have not even done the due diligence to appreciate the risks, nevermind identify them.

    • mark...While I am having fun today blowing my horn loud and clear, the fact is, the market shake down may not be over yet....

      I now hear that Soros is selling gold and buying farm ground (this is true), has he been reading my messages about grain prices (joke)...?

      For the record, I have never loss a billion dollars in the stock market yet....but I have had some losses (I think that maybe my ex-wife had something to do with it)...

      Remember, "He who rides the lion cannot dismount"...and that guy is me...

      That said, this will probably still be a rough market until the end of October (my opinion)...now about that little Susan girl, I sure do miss teasing her...Good luck to all...!

    • ..."Soros may be right on FRO"...

      And you allnuts have been proven totally FACTLESS by indicating you know more than the man who broke the bank of England for 1Billion on FRO's solid position as the world's largest oil tanker shipping company. YOU ARE STUPID!!

      ...."but big hedge fund investors and mutual fund managers have also missed horribly on some large positions that they own."...

      So what!! They can't be 100% correct or there be no markets, doofus.

      ...."For example:

      John Paulson, famous for betting against the subprime mortgages before the financial crisis, recently losts millions betting on Bank of America and certain small cap Chinese companies."...

      Paulson is small potatoes and is no George Soros with his $14.2Billion fortune. Yuk Yuk

      ...""Bill Miller, manager of certain Legg Mason mutual funds with a record of beating the S&P index for several years, was heavily invested in Freddie Mac and Countrywide and lost 60% of the value of his fund."...

      Again, Miller is no way in the same league as George Soros. When all the dust has settled Georgie is now sitting on $14.2Billion. Does Miller still have a job. Yuk Yuk

      ...."Even Warren Buffett lost money on some investments."...

      That's because Warren is not as sharp as your sid66 who makes money on every option traded and never has lost one, just an amazing record. Yuk Yuk By the way, what ever happened to sid66. Haven't heard hide nor hair from the old gal in quite some time. I fear the worst that she fell into the same trap that did her in shorting the Qmar/Exm merger back in 2008. Yuk Yuk

      ...."Many of these famed investors have good long-term track records, but they also have billions of dollars"...

      And how did they come by those billions Sherlock? They made it by having the smarts and the balls to take advantage of market conditions favorable to their expertise of trading which you so woefully lack with your inane comments on the world's largest tanker company.

      ...."and so it doesn't matter to them if they pick a losing investment every now and then as the loss is miniscule compared to their overall wealth."....

      More incoherent ravings by allnuts the consummate airhead. These boys are in it to win big and don't take any loss as miniscule as they're all big position trades not the 2 or 3 naked option contracts you're so enamored with.

      ..."Of course, every company has issues or more appropriately, risks, but not every company has the same kind of risks and the same degree. Since you depend solely on the opinions of Soros, you have not even done the due diligence to appreciate the risks, nevermind identify them."....

      Soros, Buffett, et al, what difference does it make, they're all wise, savvy investors, unlike you allnuts who makes up his own insane observations without an inkling of what your talking about. Yuk Yuk
