  • Did Shia Labeouf Help John Thomas Financial Pump InterOil? [View article]
    The longs were right on Crazy Eddie from $8 per share to $80 per share split adjusted. Than came the crash! Afterwards, the shorts were right about Crazy Eddie.

    Thank you. Next week I'll be barbequing some meat on Wall Street. Until then, let that meat grow nice and fat. Stay tuned.

  • Goldman Sachs Opens Itself Up to More Potential SEC Trouble [View article]
    Litigation is a poker game. The SEC only shows the cards it needs to show to survive a motion to dismiss and the rest of its evidence is disclosed to GS in discovery.

    So far, the SEC cites documents up to the date the transaction was approved showing the ACA thought Paulson was an equity investor.

    See below:

    51. On February 12, 2007, ACA’s Commitments Committee approved the firm’s participation in ABACUS as portfolio selection agent. The written approval memorandum described Paulson’s role as follows: “the hedge fund equity investor wanted to invest in the 09% tranche of a static mezzanine ABS CDO backed 100% by subprime residential mortgage securities.” Handwritten notes from the meeting reflect discussion of “portfolio selection work with the equity investor.”

    We only read selectively leaked tidbits of Pellegrini's testimony that claims that ACA was told of Paulson's intention to short the underlying securities, before the transaction closed. The SEC has documents and testimony that contradicts Pellegrini's selectively disclosed testimony.

    I don't want to GS made into a scape goat since it obscures real issues. However, they cannot be excused for failure to disclose and their false and misleading comments about litigation.

    They should have disclosed Wells notice since it involved an alleged fraud concerning $1billion in investor losses.

    GS turned a relatively small problem into a bigger problem. They took SEC's bait. Their lawyers should have known better.

    Simpson is an idealist, that's the worst kind of adversary for GS.

    That's what they said before Overstock.com was forced to restate it's financial reports after I exposed GAAP violations.

    I don't think GS will go under. This is a simple 10b-5 case. However, GS is escalating rather than cutting its losses and moving on.
