  • Around Sept 29th, the judge in the anti-trust collusion lawsuit should either accept or reject the negotiated settlement between the plaintiff's lawyers and the private equity companies. Since KKR had insufficient reserves set aside in the past quarter to cover the announced settlement, I am thinking that settlement of the lawsuit could have a material impact on this quarter's earnings (and just this quarter).

    This could be impacting both KKR's and BX's stock prices which have not done well this quarter. However, then again, the settlement might have little impact if it is partially covered by an umbrella insurance policy. I am just speculating here, and while I think the settlement, if accepted, is immaterial in the long term as KKR stated: it could be having a short term impact. Anyone else have any thoughts on this matter?

    While I feel honored that you asked, I am going to politely decline. I am not a financial advisor. I am simply someone that believes that the advantage that individual investors have over professional analysts is: the ability to do more in-depth research and ongoing due diligence. Those making a living doing so, are simply spread too thin, trying to track and stay on top of too many different stocks, where individual investors can be much more focused.

    I believe there are always many great opportunities in the market place, to earn exceptional returns, if one is willing to take the time to look for them. I believe anyone can do it, and be successful, if they are willing to put in the time and effort. It really is not rocket science., However, it does require time and effort.

    The only reason I spent so much time posting comments regarding MNKD and Afrezza was because it was obvious there was a continual, ongoing attempt to post false and incorrect information by those playing the short side, and trying to manipulate the stock price in their favor.

    So I encourage all individuals not to follow what anyone else does, but develop their own investment skills. I believe the object is not to wait until others identify a great investment opportunity, but instead get ahead of the pack. So I do not want to encourage anyone to "follow" me, but to blaze their own investment trail.

    I do though wish you the "best" in your investments. Notice, I did not say the "best of luck" as "lucky" investors tend not to be long term successful investors. At least that is my own personal opinion.
