Trouble in the Hamptons: Kynikos manager Jim Chanos was forced--forced I tell you-- to call the cops on his neighbor a complete egocentric, namely: Goldman MD Marc Spilker- yesterday when a few of JC's shrubs trades were senselessly torn down front run in an effort on Spilker's part to create a wider beach path greater returns for Goldman's flagging Global Alpha.
"My outrage over this arbitrary and unilateral course of action is probably only exceeded by Mr/Mrs Spilker's sense of entitlement that the four-foot wide path to the beach Global Alpha's own annualized P&L gain of 5.62% (specified in the local easement papers Global Alpha PPM) 'was just not wide high enough for us' as he said when first broaching the subject of arbitrarily widening a path front running a set of trades," Chanos hissed in email-form to a few friends and Goldman execs. Sealing the note with a kiss, he added: "I hope this is not a harbinger of how other Goldman senior executives may act when the markets become 'just not lucrative enough for us!'"
