The legend of George Soros grows

  • While other hedge fund bigshots like Bruce Kovner's Caxton Associates and Crispin Odey were buying up Bank of America (BAC -1.2%) in Q1 before an accounting foul-up forced the suspension of the bank's capital return plan and a 20% decline in the stock, George Soros unloaded his entire 2.5M share stake.
  • Caxton purchased 2.5M shares in Q1, while Odey bought 5.3M, about doubling his investment.
  • Soros also sold his entire 2.3M share stake in Citigroup.

    I wouldn't worry what Soro is buying. The guy is not too smart. Starting from the 90's when he bet huge against the internet revolution, and double down when it started to go against him. He's lucky he was able to team up with Rogers. Soros selling BAC is a plus (+) for BAC in my mind as he not that bright.

    Too funny, here you are commenting on a extremely successful individual by any standards about his luck and intellect, yet he has no idea you exist!

     

    Feel better now that you've proved Soros is not that bright?! LMBO!

    Notice that he also sold Citi. I wouldn't follow his lead on these myself.

    Based on what he picked up he probably sees the banks as dead money in 2014, hopefully he changes hi mind at some point and comes back in.
