David Einhorn's Presentation How GM Can Unlock Between $13 And $38 Billion In Value

Moments ago, General Motors holder Greenlight Capital released a presentation in which David Einhorn recommended that GM should distribute, on a tax-free basis, a second class of common stock that the holder calls “Dividend Shares.”

Greenlight wants GM to split its common stock into two classes: one that pays dividends and a second that would entitle its holders to all earnings, including stock buybacks, after the dividend is paid, according to people familiar with the matter. Greenlight believes the move could attract new investors who are willin...

Mixed bag of tricks; but good chance of market swing lows

Courtesy of Declan.

The damage was done premarket and value buyers were quick to take advantage. The index which benefited the most was the Nasdaq. It started today just above the 50-day MA and rallied off that. Volume wasn't great and the technical picture didn't really improve, but action like today's can prove to be a good starting point for a swing low.


Despite the gain in the Nasdaq, Breadth metrics are weakening but are neither overbought nor oversold.  The next strong swing low will likely take a tag of the light green ...

Bitcoin Tumbles Below Gold As China Tightens Regulations

Having rebounded rapidly from the ETF-decision disappointment, Bitcoin suffered another major setback overnight as Chinese regulators are circulating new guidelines that, if enacted, would require exchanges to verify the identity of clients and adhere to banking regulations.
