Episode 252: The Secrecy Obsession

Hi, and welcome to Episode 252 of The Traders Podcast featuring your host, Rob Booker. This show begins with Rob asking whether hedge funds should be treated like everyone else, which leads to a conversation about fairness and whether such an idea is ever possible. Rob discusses an article from the New York Times about David Einhorn and his desire to keep his trades secret. Rob says we all seem to have this air of secrecy… Next Rob talks about the acquisition of the Tumblr blogging platform and how it’s been a big miss for Yahoo. Also in this episode, Rob officially proves, once and for all, that he’s clairvoyant with his Twitter / Amazon prophecies!

Note: Shockingly, there are no photographs online of Green’s Donuts of Wheeling, West Virginia. Sorry.
