Porsche played an absolute blinder.

Screwed a bunch of amateurs into the ground and now those kiddies are squealing.

Sweet!

The hedge funds get screwed by there own greed. Very funny.

If they had made what Porsche did they would all have been laughing and drinking Champagne but because they got screwed they all went crying to mummy.

The hedge funds say it's not fair, they want people to be open, transparent and they want to cry to nanny regulator because they just love regulations, don't they? :lol::lol:

I take my hat off to Porsche.

The thing is Porsche and VW will now use that money to do useful $hit, designing new engines, hybrid drive trains, building factories that actually employ people, selling real goods for export, paying taxes.

Drinking Champagne, snorting coke and paying for prostitutes isn't useful $hit then? Won't you please think of the hookers and drug dealers that will lose out.

Porsche is family owned, they used the dividends to buy a larger VW stake.

yeah your right it is majority owned by a family of nazi tank designers, fair play to em I say. its a shame there arn't more people making false markets and cornering stocks, in fact why stop at stocks like VW why not just buy up all the food eh... and flog it back to people just cheap enough so they don't starve...

Maybe I've misunderstood you, but I think you're wrong.

Here's the rub, as far as I'm concerned: either derivative trading is acceptable or it isn't. While we have airy-fairy half-baked rules that aren't (and can't be) enforced... the only way to behave is as if this sort of activity is a risk option traders must take onboard and manage... accepting bankruptcy and default of the derivative contract if they get it wrong. I thought the question being boiled down to "are Porsche a manufacturer or a hedge fund" is preposterous. Surely we should be asking who the hell wrote these "cash covered options" which allowed Porsche to corner the market and threaten a systemic failure in the financial sector. Porsche was only able to do this because the financial sector displayed unbelievable ineptitude, hubris, arrogance and negligence when it came to risk - and a reckless abandon of fiduciary duty. Porsche, as far as I can tell, never risked insolvency - and acted responsibly in the interests of its shareholders. It is about the other side of the bets that we need to ask questions.

I have great misgivings about the way in which futures and options are managed by the financial sector - and, it seems that Porche demonstrated that the system itself was deeply flawed. I think that, as a matter of urgency, we need to establish transparent markets for derivatives... without a 100% transparent system it is inevitable that systemic failure will continue to be plausible - and those who stand to gain are only those who are sufficiently affluent that they can corner markets.
