    “For Example, Racing To Short A Stock I Mention Because It Contains Two Of The Letters Of A Stock I Shorted Last Year. That Would Be Example Of You Guys Acting Like Jo Jo The Idiot Circus Boy.”

    During a presentation on Tuesday at which he was expected to reveal his latest bearish thesis, Mr. Einhorn, a hedge fund manager, introduced a discussion of General Motors with an ambiguous line. Mr. Einhorn, the president of Greenlight Capital, pivoted on the ticker symbol of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, a target of his criticism last […]

    General Motors Confirms Ill-Timed Analyst Note Caused UBS To Be Knocked Off IPO

    Last week, we reported that UBS had been kicked off the General Motors IPO as a result of a senior high-yield analyst sending out a note to a bunch of clients that included his musings on the valuation ahead of the IPO. In a filing today, GM confirms our story.

    UBS Kicked Off General Motors IPO

    If you’ve seen the latest General Motors S-1, you might have noticed that UBS is not listed as part of the syndicate anymore, although they were part of the team as recently as October 29. Why might that be? Glad you asked!

    We’ve Seen This Trick Before

    Of course there is no way they would try to abuse the 363 sale process again since that trick is kind of old. General Motors Corp’s plan for a bankruptcy filing involves a quick sale of the company’s healthy assets to a new company initially owned by the U.S. government, a source familiar with the […]

    Magic Carpet Ride

    Remember the good ole’ days? You know, back when it was believable fantasy that Chrysler and General Motors would be fine if only they could get several billion dollars to patch things up for the several months it was going to take until unit sales got back up to 2007 levels?

    That Will Be Quite Enough From The Excitement Division For A While

    Or it would seem from the looks of the CNN piece: General Motors is preparing to announce that the Pontiac car brand — once marketed as GM’s “Excitement division” — will be killed off, according to a source familiar with the decision.

    “What Is Going To Happen To The Other Kids, Huh?”

    Maybe it is just us, but there are a number of things that just scream “wishful thinking.” Like the return of Growing Pains to television, a re-do on the OJ Simpson trial, owning your own private island, or a widely successful debt-for-equity swap at General Motors. General Motors Corp. is planning to make a formal […]

    The ADA Market Will Save Us

    It is a pity that what is probably the busiest the Executive Suite over at General Motors has been in the last twenty years is during its current preparation for a bankruptcy filing.

    Currency Singularity

    So unless you just crawled out of bed still in your Greenspan Underoos because you no longer have an office to go to, you probably know that General Motors is looking at a 2008 loss of $31 billion.
