    I think you might have accidentally misspelled “Thespian”. They way you spelled it with a “b” makes it sort of look like “lesbian,” which would obviously be incorrect since Shia is male.

    tax him

  14. Posted by guest | February 23, 2010 at 10:28 AM

    HES AN ACTOR. What do you ecxpect him to know. Id switch places with him in a second, he makes millions to play pretend, has Megan Fox on speed dial and spends his days boozing and picking up low hanging fruit. All the suden hes expected to know about trading/finance cause hes in some Oliver Stone trainwreck. Although, Im sure he knows more than Volsmile.

  15. Posted by guest | February 23, 2010 at 10:31 AM

    @14 we don’t expect him to know shit. that’s why it chafes just a bit when he claims in every single interview that he’s a trading guru, knows what it takes to get hired at goldman sachs and so on and so forth. but bravo for not getting it. idiot.

    If you didn’t know how to short and went long on ANYTHING all of last year, you’d have made money. Being lucky >>>> being smart.

    @19 master leaving a single comment with less than 15 grammatical or spelling errors, then I’ll take orders from you.

    @20 – “your” post makes you look like a fordham mba

  26. Posted by guest | February 23, 2010 at 10:57 AM

    @ 14: If anything, being any benchmark is free PR for VS (no bad PR). I could recommend a book or two on dealing with insecurity, too.
    Besides, my “Bar Mitzvah money” is being managed by positive alpha funds (which, by default, excludes you, as you use THE mouse, and your unsurpassed douchery cannot be hidden behind your “guest” handle).

    That gem you left of the CG thread is going to go unnoticed unfortunately.
    Bravo though.

    the encino schwab office is the new killin’ it!
    @NS – you did not labor in shadows, it was duly noted (as evidenced @27), it is just not as widely publicized as some of your other great work, like H-BCMLLC…

  30. Posted by guest | February 23, 2010 at 11:11 AM

    @ NS – passage of time is the cure for timing mistakes. I admit of printing some of your posts to enjoy with a sip of Armagnac. Both timeless pleasures.

    More importantly, IMDB indicates there’s like only 3 hot(ish) chicks in this WHOLE movie, 2 are credited (“Natasha” and “Audrey,” hookers, maybe?)and the other, uncredited, what the f*ck sorta Bullsh*t is that?!

  32. Posted by guest | February 23, 2010 at 11:18 AM

    @26, do you have any books that deal with being a tremendous knob? Im sure you do, and you should pick up some more because the first few didnt help.
    Your use of buzzwords in the rest of your post convince me more that you are a back office tool…..

    @32 – It is true I have a giant knob, and, no, for the last time, I will not let you play with it. I could Gundlach you, though, for a nominal fee.
    P.S. – are you implying that FO does not know what positive alpha means, or is it just limited to your shop, where I hear, it is a prerequisite to join? This concludes my comments to you, for now, and in the future (or else, my dislexy will flare up again).

    Over the course of filming his $20K investment appreciated to $489K? Assuming a six month shooting schedule that’s a ~4,690% return. He must be a good friend of James B. Blair.
    Daring bored SEC staffers on national television is the new killing it.

    I have to assume his next series of career moves will be to start a hedge fund, run it into the ground, write an awful book, and end up hawking penny stock DVDs in a DoubleTree conference room.

    @27/28. Except #1 in that thread was a troll.

    I don’t think the CFA Institute would approve of his casual commentary about investment chicanery and the lack of a well-coordinated and efficient financial market. I believe this interview warrants a review with the Disciplinary Committee in violation of the CFA Code of Ethics and the Standards of Professional Conduct. As a potential charterholder, Shia should be held to a higher standard.

    what a complete blowhard, lying through his teeth, ok Shia lets see audited fin’l statements and I will bet anything that you did not make >100% let alone 4000+% as you claim. Not to mention the movie looks incredibly stupid.

    @37 should be 4,690% annualized or 2,345% for the six month period.

  48. Posted by guest | February 23, 2010 at 12:07 PM

    44 – no need to use PE jargon (IRR) if the 20k was invested all at once. You, see, IRR is tantamount to money-weighted return, which is only applicable when there is more than one investment inflow or more than one outflow and you are looking for a return that reflets the money-on-money annualized return.

    I thought Fordham burned to the ground during the celebrations over the OJ verdict. No?

  52. Posted by Investorcluzo | February 23, 2010 at 12:13 PM

    HAM is right – you guys should stop hatin’.
    I am familiar with someone who moved from schwab’s encino office. they utilize a highly levered strategy that was developed by a fordham educated cfa. by purchasing options on margin, then employing the analysis championed by nassim taleb while following roubini’s view of the market they have been able to generate these outsized returns.
    or was it because our hero opened the account with $20k then transferred another $500k after he got paid for completing the film?
