What is going on? The SEC's going after Cooperman? Dear God what are they thinking? Cooperman is one of the good guys. He would never chance ruining his life's work and reputation for a chump change trade! Out of the question. This move by the SEC is wrong, and will diminish the credibility of the SEC for a years!
Analysts put pieces of a puzzle together to make patterns. These patterns are not based on inside information but a deep understanding of companies' industry prospects, competitors, customers and management. Cooperman is one of the best at this! One of the very best. And ideas are infinitely more powerful than non public information. Period!
