Interview with Marc Cohodes

May 10th, 2017 · 2 Comments · Mortgages

Imagine my joy this morning when reading the latest saga from Home Capital Group by Terence Corcoran. I hope they are paying him extra to take the ridiculous and completely wrong position that everyone except Home Capital Group is to blame for its latest round of problems with disclosure, with its share price, and its lack of honest dealings with the public.

Nothing has changed over there. “They have changed their business model” and “They have sold Billion Dollars worth of Mortgage Tranche” but we don’t know who bought the mortgages or at what discount. They may well have have sold their mortgages to Dollarama for crying out loud, planning to offer 1$ pieces of their mortgage book to more of the unsuspecting public. That’s the whole point we don’t know and it’s a publicly traded company and we should know. That’s been the underlying issue since 2014. One think we do know, their deposits are still escaping.

Meanwhile even the province is joining the coverup over at Home Capital Group with the appointment of Alan Hibben to the Board amid protests from OPSEU.

Anyways I did a bit of an interview with Marc this morning. Enjoy!

This guy really is a hero. Here’s the Maclean’s story about how Fortress tried and failed to shut him up. He’s also a good fisherman. You can contact him here.

    “the ridiculous and completely wrong position that everyone except Home Capital Group is to blame for it’s latest round of problems with disclosure, with it’s share price, and it’s lack of honest dealings with the public.”

    It’s = it is. The three instances of the word should all be “its” (belonging to it).
