Halcyon's Bader sees plenty of risk


"I am going to go on the record," says Halcyon Asset Management chairman John Bader, speaking at the WSJ's Heard on the Street conference. "Japan is an accident waiting to happen ... I don't think this is today's or tomorrow's business, but I think in 10 years this blows up big time ... you can't operate with a debt to equity level like that."

Turning domestically, Bader - viewing a stock market "gone to the moon," the end of the 30-year bond bull market, and high yield "priced to perfection," - sees a lot of risks right now. He's positioned to make money be shorting REIT indexes and other similar instruments.
