    Area Man Threatens To Out-Toilet Stevie Cohen

    Trouble in hedge fund land. Greenwich residents are terrified that would-be new neighbor, Russian millionaire Valery Kogan, will make them look bad (read: poor) by building a proposed 54,000 square foot mansion with two wings, “extensive” subterranean space, and room for up to 300 guests, which will clearly dwarf their own homes, relative shacks compared […]

    Will The Real Slim Cohen Please Stand Up?

    On Tuesdays, I like to do what I call investigative journalism. Also called, by some in the field,“Google Image searching.” Little anthropological looks into what’s up at hedge funds, the private, largely unregulated pools of capital whose managers can buy or sell any assets and participate substantially in profits from money invested. Sometimes I publish […]

    Feds Get In On The SACtion

    Great headline, right? There’s more where that came from. Anyway, according to papers files yesterday, the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is now investigating allegations that a SAC trader was required to take female hormones as part of a senior trader’s “top secret training program.” For those of you who don’t have Google alerts set […]

    The Secret To SAC’s Success?

    In May, we told you about the allegations of sartorial behavior modification at SAC Capital Management. Former SAC employee Andrew Z. Tong had accused current SAC employee (and top trader, and Yoko Ono neighbor) Ping Jiang of sexual harassment that included enrollment in a “top secret training program,” and the elimination of Tong’s alleged personality […]

    SAC Manager Has An Opportunity To Make More Money, May Take It

    Stevie Cohen (may be) a sell-out. Yes, the man who has made his money through a combination of massive, rapid trading in US securities and “If you tell anyone about this, I’ll end you” secrecy is considering selling upwards of 20% of SAC Capital, his $14 billion hedge fund. The Financial Times reports that the […]

    Selachimorpha Moves: SAC

    Stevie Cohen’s “shark,” which is “big, important and amazingly powerful,” will be on display at the Met by Labor Day weekend, the museum confirmed on Friday. The shark, which floats in a tank of formaldehyde, has been sought after by the Gary Tinterow, the curator in charge of contemporary art, since it was purchased by […]

    Sartorial Behavior Modification at S.A.C.?

    It’s no secret that Stevie Cohen and S.A.C. Capital Management like to keep secrets. Cohen owns the media rights to publish his photographs, makes traders in his group swear on their lives that they won’t disclose any information, never shares his ideas with others and types all correspondence in ǃ’OǃKung. A New York County Supreme […]

    In Defense of Hedge Funds

    Nice pump up speech for hedge funds in today’s Hedge Week (we’re not going to make our ‘hedge’ quota by 5 without your help). Despite industry leaders “prophesying an end to the industry,” George Soros saying hedge funds are too over-exposed, Stevie Cohen (immune to self-inflicted irony) noting that the days of big returns are […]

    Something Cheesy About How SAC’s Always So Private and This Is a ‘Private’ Deal Or Whatever—You Can Do It Better Than Us

    As previously noted this morning, private equity will be the hot chick at the party in ’07. But we didn’t realize that she’d be so hot that Stevie-boy Cohen would dip his fingers in her womanaly charms. But we’ve been not-clairvoyant before so, uh, this is nothing new (though upsetting all the while). As The […]

    SAC In The District?

    The Hill reports that SAC Capital is currently building “a team equipped with considerable resources to make bets on Washington-based political intelligence, including tips gathered on and off Capitol Hill.” SAC is purportedly earmarking up to $1 billion for the venture. Two of Stevie-boy’s henchmen have been spotted lurking around the area, and have told […]

    Hedge Funds Versus Art: The Cost Steve Wynn’s Elbow

    Bloomberg’s reporting today that Steve Wynn is suing Lloyds of London for $54 million, the amount of the claim he submitted after he stuck his elbow through a Picasso that SAC Capital founder Stevie Cohen had agreed to buy for $139 million. We don’t know. We like to think that if we put our elbow […]

    How Stevie Cohen Ruined Amaranth

    A bid by SAC Capital’s Stevie Cohen to hire away energy trader Brian Hunter may have been “the first domino” in the series of decisions that eventually led to the collapse of Amaranth, the Greenwich, Connecticut-based hedge fund brought down in September by bad bets on energy futures, according to a report from Bloomberg this […]

    Wealthy People Still Overspending On Ugly Art

    Stevie-boy has said that he makes 90% of his money from 5% of his investments. We hope he’s trying to make money with this art stuff because the alternative–that someone would actually like to have stuff like this painting hanging around their home–is too horrible to contemplate. From the New York Times: As records were […]

    Steve Wynn’s $40 Million Party Foul

    We totally saw this on the Brady Bunch once. (Yeah, we know it was a vase, but it’s the same idea and you know it). The thing to do is tape it together and hope mom and dad don’t notice. The Ganz collection went up for auction in 1997, Wynn was saying — he was […]
