Muddy Waters Just Getting Started On Sino-Forest

That report they released last week? Wasn’t even their best material, according to founder Carson Block who told reporters today from an undisclosed location there’s so much more where that came from and that anyone long Sino should probably be quaking in their boots. You don’t even know.

Carson Block, the short seller whose assertions of financial manipulation by Sino-Forest Corp. (TRE) preceded a 71 percent plunge in the forestry company’s shares last week, said he will release more research “pretty soon.”

“We didn’t really do our accounting tour de force,” said Block, the founder of Hong Kong-based Muddy Waters who’s said he doesn’t like to give his exact address because he’s received death threats. “Our resident accounting monster is chomping at the bit to get going.”

    Someday, this smug Muddy Waters idiot is gonna go all in on a single Chinese trade (think options on margin) and BOOM.

    I always wondered whether guys like him have a set amount they want to rake in before they call it a career.

    This is an exceptional business to be in. If Carson has made less than 5x his money in the last 12-18 months doing this, I’d be shocked. If he made the right trades and reinvested the proceeds, it’s not that hard to see how he could have made 50-100x his money. Too bad he’ll probably be arrested next time he steps foot on American soil.

    Long puts don’t work like that. Stick to selling CDS in Wilton.

    No. The one above is better.

    He’s had so many winning trades that he can finally hire an editor for his reports.

    Who are you idiots and where do you come from? Is it your eyes that give you trouble understanding simple English or are you just chock full of stupid?

    I’m the idiot that wants to make multiples of my money every 3 months or so by ‘assisting with market price discovery’ in instances of fraud amongst US-listed Chinese small caps….

    Yes, they do. You know, not everyone is restricted to an Interactive Brokers margin account.

    I would always like to help out with your shtoos. Just let me know and maybe I can arrange it. I don’t know if I would have the patience you have, though. After watching you in action, I know for sure that it’s a whole lot harder than I imagined. I might panic, or start to cry if the baby wouldn’t go to sleep and. There’s a lot of pressure. On second, though?/
