There has been a lot of talk on both sides of the value fence lately. The bulls and “value investors” are beating the drums of value everywhere the eye can see, while the bears are screaming its all fraud.
Who to believe? The “value investors” definitely lost a lot of street cred with the last meltdown as they were all the last ones to get out. Explaining the whole way down to the bottom how stocks were cheap because they are always basing everything on old numbers and earnings expectations that can always fall off a cliff.
Disaster week for our short position as the oversold rally gained momentum on some lightly better than expected numbers. The bulls were definitely ready to take any nibble of good news and run with it. We are basically back to were we started with our short. Now I understand why so many long time hedge fund managers are quitting the business with all this choppiness based on randomness.
