Following John Paulson into the BZH trade

  1. Once a long time ago, I thought companies like Beazer were done and would go bankrupt one day. Wasnt it not too long ago the FBI was raiding its offices? What happened with that?

    Now I learn that John Paulson purchased 5 million shares. Paulson was the guy shorting the market all the way down and now he is buying Beazer? Huh?

    Well, Paulson knows his stuff so I think its time to follow this man into the trade and buy a little Beazer...

    At the open tomorrow, I will be buying chunks of Beazer...

  2. Sounds like you'd be more than willing to follow someone off a cliff too.

    Why do you promote your garbage on here?
  3. I just bought a BIG CHUNK of that garbage this morning. Beazer is a 10 dollar stock! I am behind Paulson on this trade.
  4. Paulson and Don Wilson (DRW Trading) partnered with a REIT manager to buy large tracts of raw, entitled land and residential homes in early 2008 and into 2009. Paulson and Wilson invested 100s of millions in the space by early 2009, so I wouldn't place much emphasis on a $25MM investment in BZH for a $33B fund.

    You actually do this for a living? wilson&pagenumber=1
  5. Nope, I dont do this for a living. I'm just some retired oil guy out here in Thailand with my laptop in one hand and a margarita in the other practicing life extension and talking shit.

    Whether its a big position or a small position, that has no bearing. Its the risk of schmuckdom that has bearing. Even small deals gone bad can put you in the schmuckdom. I think Paulson is being more careful with each move nowadays so he can retain his cred...

  6. Clueless.
