"Using cigarettes for exchange And when they take your brand away there's not much you can do It's painful But that's what it's like with these addictive I haven't had any Copenhagen for ten days So I'm on a streak here Thanks very much for that Greg Jarrett with your Bloomberg business flash Let's get back to what's going on in Russia especially as it is affected by the markets Yesterday Fitch put out a warning saying a Russian default is imminent Damien sass hour is here Chief emerging markets credit strategist for Bloomberg intelligence And Damien I would think there are a number of reasons why I'm surprised they haven't defaulted already What's the story because they can't pay they can't pay dollar coupons right Yeah Matt well that's exactly right I mean Russia I mean look the reality is Putin doesn't want to pay in the west doesn't want their money right now So a default I agree is inevitable but it may not happen imminently because there's a lot of things that have to be taken into account for one grace period Most bonds most dollar bonds certainly have 30 day grace periods So they can stretch this out But in terms of what we're looking at here on the 16th of March we have a 117 million of coupons owed by Russian bonds to the nominated in dollars If they don't make those payments the 30° period will kick off on the sovereign right So that's kind of the D date there For other Russian corporates such as gas prom and Ross left interestingly enough Gazprom made a $1.3 billion principal payment on Monday In dollars In dollars Exactly And Ross was they were supposed to make a $2 billion principal payment on Sunday Monday and it looks like they're going to make that payment today now A lot of speculating well why would they do this right Especially if Putin is probably not looking very favorably on them for paying dollars away from the economy that's so desperately in need of it Well the reason is the money is sitting in a hold co operating offshore and chances are they weren't allowed to bring those dollars in because clear stream a year clear or the payment authorities wouldn't allow them to transfer the funds back to Russia right So they had one of two options It sits there and eventually they go into default and creditors can get at it anyway or they make payment on time and they avoid the fault for that much longer so it's probably the latter Explain to lay people what happens if you default because you know I was looking yesterday at the story the airplane story right Russia has taken $10.3 billion worth of airplanes that less stores are trying to get back And I thought this is irreversible Even if they somehow get out of Ukraine even if they apologize for everything they've done no one's ever trusting those airlines again right Because insurance is going to kick in and have to lose 10 billion That's like a hurricane money How irreversible is a default for a country I mean especially with what we've seen happen in Argentina or Venezuela How long does it take to bounce back from that Matt this is where the slope gets very very slippery This is why you can't compare a lot of these dollar bonds that are issued by Russia to what's happened in Argentina And Jay Newman who is the portfolio manager under Paul singer at Elliott highlighted this just the other day The fact of the matter is Bond jurisdiction doesn't explicitly submit to UK common law for many of these bonds So what's the court system that's going to rule in the event of a restructuring or a default If Russia insists that the jurisdiction is Russia well the Russian court system is probably not going to look too favorably on credit operating in America who want to basically have at their underlying assets Similarly if it was UK common law Russia is going to push back on that And it's just going to stretch out these restructurings ad nauseam So Jay Newman rightly points out this is closer to Venezuela than it is to Argentina And if you look at where some of the bonds in Venezuela are trading I mean you can't really check the pricing because they don't trade anymore They're sanctioned They're treating it like four cents on the dollar So we are really talking about no recovery for creditors in Russia here That's what I'm sort of trying to establish from a credit perspective Have they crossed the Rubicon I mean there's no going back right Yeah Well I mean there is going back but the timing is it's just such a tight window here I mean I have to believe that the default is eminent And look I mean this is kind of it's just being magnified by the fact that the rating agencies S&P Fitch and moody's have downgraded Russia to what triple C double C single C I mean they're all indicating default And they've all been removed these bonds have been removed out of the JPMorgan and Bloomberg major bond indices I mean you know Russian equities have now been removed from the MSCI and so forth the FTSE So you know it's already begun and for all intents and purposes yes you're right The bonds are trading as if they're in default Default swaps are pricing in an 85% probability of default So yeah it doesn't look good Right There's no F rating Is there You know I've lost often thought that they should have an E F and G rating the way the way things are looking for I look at RA TD go on the Bloomberg to figure out what's going on there And you can see that we only get to C minus and then you go to WR withdrawn What about Ukraine What's the situation with those debts Because you'd think creditors would be more.

"You know that he deliberately suppressed the crisis off precious metals such as gold and silver to keep the U. S dollar low? Did you know that they've been doing it for decades to keep the dollar high to keep the dollar price of silver and gold low? In fact, I've actually heard that the Wall Street bets that read it that we've been talking about the people that have been doing this purchasing of the Gamestop Rumor has it. They may be pumping up the price of silver. Next, what they claiming is that these hedge Funds have been shorting silver. Aziz. Well, so placing not just the hedge funds. Everybody's been JP Morgan, as dude said, has been shorting. They've been shorting silver for decades. And that's one of the reasons that you can't get physical delivery. Yeah, so I saw rumor today. They're talking about buying up silver. Now. I don't know if that's true, because I don't know if they're putting out misinformation now to try to throw the hedge funds off the trail or what, but this is gonna be interesting to watch it. Specially if they're able to actually see where these hedge funds have placed their bets, because then they can just target every single one of those stocks or the silver or whatever that they're, you know, They're putting their their short son. Well, I would say that silver and gold are probably going to be their most fertile fields. Because I think those have been suppressed blow their natural value for a long time. Which isn't the case would say Game stop, which is actually a dying company for all For all I know Um, yeah, that's to show you how ruthless Wall Street it's just to show you out Lupus, Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs and Larry Think of Black Rock and then play their games for decades of stuff. Look at Bernie made off. He When the 55 billion from his client. What about center capitalists like Steve Colon, Paul singer Carla icon who are parasites and vultures? Uh I don't know anything about those people. What are you saying that they do? They gobble up companies. They leave nothing but the bones, leaving once healthy companies bankrupt and the workers unemployed. And why would eventually I don't know enough about finance isn't a venture capitalist. Somebody who puts money into a thing to try to make you know as an investment to try to make it away with it, But they get like bees and they get out early. So it doesn't necessarily mean that they would no matter what. Basically what you invest. Well, No, they win. Except when they lose. They go bankrupt, too. But what you're capitalists do Is they buy up companies like they might buy up game stop at the end and then take all the physical stuff that belongs to game stop and sell it to other companies because they still have you know buildings. They still have a rental or whatever. I don't know what they have, but they have assets of some sort. Maybe that eventually have to be gotten rid of her. They are greedy and evil International Jewish bankers and when before you get upset, I got to go there again, right? No, no Christian would ever do anything like this. Right? Ridiculous. This is all you ever talk about it. I'm sick of it around. There's something else we can tell you about Paul Singer. He took a healthy company Cabella you've heard of Cabela's sporting goods seventies. It was a healthy company. Look on the Internet, and suddenly the brass got their headquarters. It was a thriving company. He destroyed the company. He bought the assets up on pennies on the dollar. Employees. Stuff of employees have been left unemployed. The company is bankrupt, and he destroyed it because he made billions for himself and erect the company. On Dad. Why was he able to buy it up for pennies on the dollar? If it was such a healthy company shouldn't have other Shouldn't other people have been been wanting to buy? It is well. No, they wait to sort of stomach. They don't know how they work, and they play games with the stock price. And they made by no Scott. I mean the reason why people were able to buy up game stop is because it was dying and the reason why, and I don't know anything about Cabela's, but if it was, you know, available for pennies on the dollar that means they were near toe out of business already. You know, And maybe that's because of Amazon or, you know, other online purchasing and competition. Only thing I remember about Cabela's is that they badly screwed themselves by by irritating the gun rights community. Oh, restricted sales. Yeah, they they restricted gun sales or took guns out of there. But gun people were mad at them, which is, you know you don't huge. You don't wanna irritate the gun People know, especially when they're buying all their camping supplies from you and all the others. Stuff that they get. Thank you for the call Scott appreciate it's just, you know, I don't know why he can't see that There are plenty of people who are in search of power. There are plenty of people who are willing to wield power in order to get money. And it doesn't matter what their religious belief is or whatever they're you know, ethnicity is they're all over the world, all of them. Yeah, I've I don't get it. Either Asian people who are like that There are African people who are like that. There are Russians who are like that They're people all over the world who will take advantage of other human beings will take advantage of being able to just Just throw people's lives away just to make a buck. Those people are all over the place. Yeah, I mean, the one of the largest and bloodiest mafias in the world is composed almost entirely.

That collectors will soon be able to start texting and emailing you. So in addition of harassing consumers, these new methods of communication open up a lot more ways for people become victims of phishing scams. That's according to most consumer advocates. Congress passed a single the Fair debt Collection Practices Act and 1977. It was put in place to limit the time place and methods that debt collectors could get you to pay up. But because that bill was passed over 40 years ago, modern modes of communication like text and e mail well, they weren't obviously not included. So starting in 2021 debt collectors will be able to contact consumers via text. Email, social media. And voicemails, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has expressed some concerns. Allowing collectors to send messages like these will enable other scammers too easily prey on us is vulnerable targets because you can count on the fact it's gonna be difficult for consumers to tell the difference between an honest and create and illegal scam with your money news.

want to get some more information on before they finally you know they finally got a mainstream they finally had one of the doctors talking about it last night on television and then you know that now all of a sudden is going to raise the level of understanding as to what he's talking about so I I think that this basically could come it relatively soon if it works I mean it's got a it's got to be supported by the scientific community yeah it's encouraging but let's not forget to encourage because we don't know yet I explain this to me now if you if someone is using and I admit that I'm lost on

better level comes in right you know that that's that's exactly what the president trump was talking about when he brought out all the CEOs of all these major retailers and then you have to think about the manufacturers you gotta think about the warehouses you gotta think about the drivers and yeah I'm Tony trucks are going left and right you know all that part of our our country's amazing when you see everything that's happening as quickly as it has happened over the last week whether it be the testing centers that are opening up on all the different expansion of hospitals looking for areas where if they need more hospital beds get the army corps of engineers in here get something set up I mean they got blood mobiles all over the place yeah it is just nonstop the entire country is just basically moving to make sure that all of this stuff the stays stocked ready and able so when people do go to the supermarket they'll be able to get their things yeah I need these are the things that you you don't think about how it happens you just hope that it happened but now we're thinking about the process of it right all the hard workers that are still out there that are working extra shifts that are making sure that these grocery stores are stocked in the grocery store employees of course as we mentioned before the most important are the health care workers right now and how much they are putting in two days to make sure that everything is as normal as possible which is not going to be but you know their sacrifices and and their jobs are more important than ever in this country so that these are things that you you can you walk into a grocery store you take everything for granted that's on the shelf and how it got there and now the people that are making these things packaging these things delivering these things are is as important as they've ever been so to hear truckers out there doing their job and then working their **** off it makes me feel good I'll tell you that much yeah sure it should should make us all feel good right let's go to Gemini's patch of my neck of the woods you might say let's hang out but I'm not allowed to be around anybody what's

"You don't find the ads and stuff that the left does to the extent the left does not pay attention to the arts and entertainment the way it needs to be paid attention to I don't I don't need a counter offer anything so I can say this you don't know there are some out there that are amazing and they understand the importance of making sure that there's you know it either investigative videos or youth involvement or a number of things and knows they are the exception not the rule a conversation with someone through this week that was explaining to me how difficult it was to get some Republican donors to get involved with some of the other culturally based stuff viral videos or even creating the court at the the class I street teams for different candidates in certain in certain districts for instance even urban districts the only reason that those aren't even competitive for certain rep for Republicans in some states is because people will not put the money and the time in to see the ground they ran Beto o'rourke and spent millions and millions and millions and millions of dollars on this do you know when you don't have a shot in hell but they did not for him to win and they did it to see the ground to make it to where someone at some point could Republicans don't do that in a number of districts it is frustrating you shoot yourself in the foot that's one of the reasons why I wanted to hit that story in this one and the same segment because I love what Paul singer's doing he gets it some of these other people out here they get it.

"I am not messing with you. He has blessed me with you and I hope you feel the same way about us but I definitely feel that way about you. So I'm not complaining here but we have been targeted pretty ruthlessly by left wing tech companies twitter banned us from running. Ads never gave any kind of a reason. We've had issues with other companies as well again. Not a SOB story doesn't but you all know that. Listen to this show what's happened. Well folks I've said to you that eventually and some of you don't like it when I say this. You want a government solution. Fine I respect your opinion I disagree. I think the government's only GonNa make it worse and the Democrats are gonNA use it as a formal reason to ban conservatives from these platforms using actual law which disturbs me deeply putting the Democrats in charge of social media if we get elected president and a majority of Democrats in the House and the Senate side should frighten the hell out of all of especially with a bunch of liberal judges. Still out there too. I don't think it's the solution. I respect your opinion. I've always said to you. I believe the free market is going to find a way just like we found Fox News. I get this story to take me just a little background on that I will never forget. Being an instructor at the Secret Service Academy and one of my classes was graduating and they had roger ailes. Who was the head former head of Fox and he came down to speak at the graduation. Someone New am. I forget how we get down there but he was talking about the idea for Fox News and he had this line. I will never forget. I heard it right from his mouth. He said you know when we thought a Fox News. We said you know. There's this unserved market in America for media like actual facts now propaganda called fifty one percent of America and everybody laughed because it was so obvious like the Fox News model was so obvious and yet nobody saw. Cbs NBC ABC. And we're all lying to people for years. People were pissed. Someone finally said. Hey how about we just tell people the truth and they started Fox. Well folks the obvious solution to what's going on left wing media as Paul said this morning you know. It's good to start up alternatives as well. We seem parlors. One of my sponsors here terrific. I'm over there now at Dbongino but one of the great stories. I've seen to one. That came up this little gem from Fox News today by Gregory which will be up in the show notes. And you should really read this but dot com slash newsletter. If you want to gregory billionaire Republican buys a major twitter stake may house the CEO amid gop inserts of bias. The report says now is Paul Singer who is not really a trump guy for a while but since I believe come around according to people I know Paul Singer yeah so to be full and candidate disclosure but Paul Singer is a very wealthy guy is a major controlling share in twitter. Now why does this matter ladies and gentlemen because unlike some other social media companies out there twitter only has one class of shares? Meaning if you're wealthy enough you can buy some outstanding shares of twitter and eventually over time depending on your controlling interest take control of the company. So what again we have competitors like Parlor Which. You're doing a great job. There were sponsor full disclosure but I was on before they were a sponsor. I'm at Dbongino. There we have a number of competitors these social media companies coming out there now and not only that we have Republicans who are concerned about them. Buying controlling interest ladies and gentlemen capitalism is slow freedom and liberty isn't easy but I'm telling you the government solution is not a good one. The markets will eventually find a solution..

"This is interesting there is honor for the G. O. P. Paul singer he is a billionaire that founded Elliott management and he's given a lot of money to Republican causes he is just purchased a stake in Twitter and the rumor is he is wanting to oust Jack Dorsey because he doesn't like how he's sort of a hippie that is wanting to go just meditate in Africa somewhere the delays I think he just doesn't like the way that he's run sweater he's checking out what he's going to check it out right he's sort of he's acting kind of weird I mean he is but he's also involved in the forties doing dumb stuff like you know banning political advertising in the act banning people and spending people with really well in LA for dumb reasons yeah yeah so this is I just wondered like how this might change things it was funny because the share price raised at the news of this well every thing else was tanking Twitter actually went up a little bit on Friday after they heard that this is happening so they are and they're Elliott management is considered an activist investor which means it doesn't just dump money into places it pushes for change in the companies that it invests in interesting so I don't know what that means yeah this could be really really interesting especially because this is an important year obviously we'll have to see how that shakes things up yeah in the world of Twitter so that is happening we'll keep an eye on that also grossest story ever out of Maryland's police said that there is a guy that they've arrested and they arrested him actually last Tuesday charged him with first and second degree assault and reckless endangerment because he was going around stabbing people with syringes full of semen and you did you saw the videos right yeah can you imagine being like involuntary injected with some dudes my god it's yeah it's horrific just to rific needs doing it like grocery stores you just walk into the grocery store and some guy just stab you with it and needle and these apparently he would say things to these women who would obviously be shocked and wonder why they had the just got stabbed yeah and he would say things like feels like a bee sting doesn't it hi res so creepy possessed someone to do that because you're completely psychotic I can't believe nobody just beat the crap out of him I know because I that would be really hard for me not to beat the crap out of yeah but you wouldn't know what I mean like why would you think that that's what happened is he hold me you can find these very stuff about it right like so he stabbed you then immediately hides the syringe and then he's just standing there looking at yeah you know what he says feels like a bee sting but you you still don't know right like you don't know what has just happened the last thing I would think if that happen to me was I wonder if that syringe was filled with semen well I would but I do know it was filled with something yeah and I would be completely freaking out oh my god can I just can't imagine you just don't know what it's filled with thank goodness he has been arrested because damn that's gross also it's been a long time since we've talked about sex robots and it is time for you okay well that's of course you did because drudge is where you find all the latest and greatest about sex robots find all of them in his garage basically for all the sex robots are Matt drudge's garage I I defer relied on a sleigh I'm not exactly sure but there is a computer science professor who is named Dr David David levy and he believes that they're going to have to be some serious programming changes to sex robots in order to avoid being sexually assaulted by them no joke I was wearing my daughters with me yesterday we're getting a weird timers you know my my husband our timers we're sitting there waiting for a light timers meeting and we're sitting in chairs and I saw the story and I knew I just we're talking about this you're in charge of the template for today I showed this to my husband I'm like seriously these robots are assaulting people now and he just looked at me like she got a because as like yeah it was like why are you friends with I would be talking I know are we talking about this tomorrow and there and basically attacking people well this is the thing because the more that that whoever the developers these manufacturers these designers of these things are trying to make them more human and more have more emotional intelligence right the more that they program these robots to be like people the higher the chances are that they behave like people right and so he's he was talking at some sort of an event where he said we got to talk about programming these things to actually listen to cues of consent because they become like Johnny Depp's wife our ex wife right whatever name I mean this is it's not and he says and I quote it is clearly going to be a nontrivial task to teach robots how to navigate appropriately through sexual scenarios and how to behave when a woman is not explicit in expressing her consent or refusal so this is I mean he's saying because it's so easy to hack them that you could actually have a sex robot to be violent the whole point of these though is that you don't want a motion the whole place not want guys want they don't want any emotion in these things is not.

"paul singer" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"And Jason Kelly from Bloomberg radio. Jason a story this week in the finance section. It's about a hedge fund, and I feel like this is kind of a theme that we've had over the past year or so that a one storied hedge fund all of a sudden kind of runs into trouble. And maybe it's the bigger macro environment. Sometimes it's a star investment manager. Lease it is microcosmic word. I think so cut your poor Sagansky is here this she got. This scoop really the inside look and his Carroll says this is a bigger story than just this one headline tells about perjury. So is a twenty five year old finest one of the oldest hedge funds still surviving and very well respected firm and spent many many months working on this story, and you can read the whole thing online at and we kind of use it as a vessel to tell us a story about the the hedge fund industry at large, which is very. Unlike private equity firms and very unlike mutual fund firms because they are really entrepreneurial ventures is really important to remember that the hedge fund industry a lot of these even the ones that manage billions and billions of dollars. You know, they barely have an HR department. They are a few scrappy guys with a terminal, and they don't really have a plan in place to last past the first generation very few actually have figured out a way to survive beyond their founder. We'll dig deeper into the specifics about happened at for capital management because this really does tell the story. So. Well, absolutely. So was founded by a man named Jeff tanenbaum who was a former private equity analyst, and he founded it in nineteen ninety four, but it didn't really start taking off until he tapped one of his former classmates from Tulane university. This guy named Andrew Friedman. I'm calm and really build it. And so Frederick comes along in two thousand and takes this firm from being three hundred million dollars to thirteen billion dollars. His track record is huge. It's really big. And he he's actually a very good investor. Just we were comping his returns versus the SNP. Or other other relative value firms or hedge funds at large, and he really did beat them. He annualized seven point five percent over his tenure, and that's including some bad months when he wasn't even there. So we just tried to take a full picture, and he builds it, but he's not really the personality that you see often in investing. He stays in Miami, Florida. Even though the headquarters are here in New York. And he's kind of got this like child of the sixties personality. He's obsessed with every trade that's put on he's on around the clock. He's dialing up his analysts, and he's involved in this in the culture in Nevada important way. So even though Jeff tanenbaum was the founder Andrew Friedman is really the heart and soul of this firm and unlike Bill Gross who retired as seventy four well past his prime Friedemann steps away. It is prime which is just you never see fifties early sixties three. Three years old. I mean, he is the lottery ticket and he just throws it away. I mean, not say still got very rich over the course of his life was just kind of done. He was done. He was burned out. And he was just over it. And we really rarely see that and it shocked everyone, and even though the virtually had a successor succession plan in place like they had a top Lieutenant of his was the natural successor. He took over and they had this whole group of managing directors that would support this the successor things still fell apart. And that's what's that's what's so interesting about this story because you can have a plan, but to execute and to see how it actually comes together when when when you have to when when the time comes that's what's really interesting about the hedge fund, and that's the underlying theme of your story when you talk about him being the heart and soul, the core of the firm. And so when that goes away it all comes undone. Yeah. You don't really appreciate. How someone is the glue until they're gone. And it's whether you know, and you can try really hard to to stick to your plan. But at the end of the day, the firm has lost eight billion dollars since he left. The performance has not gone. Well, it's just been pretty bad year after bad year last year. They lost eight point two percent. And they're mired in a lot of bad trades that came about starting when he stepped back and one of the things that you rightly point out, and you know, you mentioned private equity funds earlier that money is locked up for longer amounts of time. With a hedge fund it starts to spiral downward right performance. It gets to a certain point a lower point people start to pull their money out other people start to pull their and it it spirals downward very very quickly. Actually, I three has their capital locked up for two years because they do take some positions that are more private equity style. But that's how you know. Right. Like investors patience is wearing down. Now, it's been basically five years of mediocre performance. They and even though the capital is locked up. You can see that redemptions are happening money talks. Right. If money's coming out, obviously, investors aren't pleased. And I think I love this line in your story that you talk about general a generational shift has begun. And you think about. Revalue and Bridgewater and some other really storied firms that are so identified with the core in terms of the investment philosophy. What happens after these folks go away? It'll be really interesting to see how a lot of those firms deal with it we've been covering it and writing about how they've been putting the pieces in place, but Ray Dallaglio is trying to put his brain into a machine. So that he can live on even after he's gone. A lot of other firms have have put kind of a co CIO like Paul singer has has. Co-ceo? Dan Pollock has been there for many years. And basically, the idea is this guy is just going to take over when pulse. Steps away Paul ever steps away. No different than the private equity round that you so closely covered Jason that you've got somebody who so identified right firm. And then what do they do for succession plan? Right. Well, and we've seen in the hedge fund world, especially, you know, a lot of people very well known managers whether it's league Cooperman or others sort of say, I'm done. You know Soros, obviously, very notably. Did it? They convert to a family office, which is kind of the I'm going to go spend more time with my family. And it still requires a lot of layoffs and one of the issues you're like within private equity firms a lot of them are publicly traded, right? So they have a board whole thing is well orchestrated years in advance these guys they're not publicly traded, and they don't really care. I mean, a lot of them don't really care what happens to their fun after they've retired their fund their the lay offs associated with it like Lee Cooperman was crying when when we interviewed him about him turning into a family office. He said he's going to have to lay off the majority of the staff. I mean, even if you're still. Existing in some way, or another most of the people that's cut you a Porsche can ski, Carol. And man, she's such a great reporter in told that story very well. She really did. And the bigger broader story here is about these storied respected hedge funds that have had great track records. But what happens when kind of the star investor at the firm leans? It's all about succession, well and timely this week, especially with the departure of Bill grows from Janice Henderson, he of course, really made pimco into what it is today.
