OMG! This is priceless.  Here’s a  video gem excerpt of SAC Capital’s Steven Cohen — with a full head of hair — and his wife Alex, a month into their marriage, as they appeared on the talk show “Christina” in a 1992 segment entitled “He Acts Like Her Husband, Too”.  They discussed how he was still involved with his ex-wife  Patricia (and apparently still sleeping with her some of the time, though that’s not included in the video excerpt).   Sex with the  former Mrs. Cohen ended after he and Alex got engaged.  During his marriage to Patricia, Cohen admitted there were some “financial difficulties”.   Cohen starting SAC Capital in 1992 — the same year as the below footage.   Now his  ex is suing him for guzillions and alleging that he engaged in insider trading.

The NY Observer has a piece on Julie Macklowe, the 31 year old high fashion socialite wife of Billy Maclowe (of the real estate family).  A ‘99 graduate of UVa, she did LBO’s (in some unstated capacity), then worked for Metropolitan Capital, landed at one of Steve Cohen’s funds at  SAC Capital — Sigma Capital  — as a portfolio manager and was ultimately laid off when the economy fell apart.   Now’s she’s seeded with $250 million from Millennium Capital’s Izzy Englander at her own firm, Macklowe Asset Management (JMACK Capital).   And she wears lots of designer labels.   Zac Posen.  Chanel. Balenciaga.  Dolce & Gabbana. She wears thigh high boots.   And she’s been known to dress outrageously in Lady Gaga-esque get ups (“a pant-less Lady Gaga look with the Rodarte blazer and Chanel combat boots”).  Does she make money?  Who knows — the article doesn’t really go into that.  But her specialty is retailers (who knew?), and they’ve mostly rocked this year.

With all of the turmoil and new game changers appearing when you least expect
it causing tremendous market volatility, some of the best known hedge funds have been heading for cash for the year’s final stretch.  Some of
those stuffing the mattresses are SAC Capital’s Steve Cohen, Millenniumm
Partners’ Izzy Englander, and Paulson Capital’s John Paulson.

While that might be prudent, at least for the short run, that’s not why most
funds get paid the big bucks, especially with what’s paid on cash these
days.  Those guys will probably be able to get away with it since even
through the turmoil, they’ve fared better than most.  However, if smaller
funds try it, they might not be so successful.  In the hedge fund world,
it’s a game of ‘use it or lose it’ if you’re not justifying those fees.

According to the Wall Street Journal the SEC has subpoenaed over 50 hedge
funds in their quest to find out if there were false rumors spread, leading to
the demise of Bear Stearns and the plunge in Lehman Brothers shares.  The
firms subpoenaed may or may not be the focus of the probe; they were asked for
information regarding their trading in the securities of BSC and LEH, as well as
correspondences between hedge funds and others.  Reportedly among the
names: SAC Capital and Citadel.

Hedge fund 13F Charts have been updated

Posted by WSF On July - 7 - 2008

Even some of the largest, most well heeled hedge funds are doing less bond business these days.  So if you’re looking for a job on that side of the business, other than the new distressed funds that may be hiring, pickings may be slim.  BreakingViews reports in the WSJ that even Stevie Cohen’s $16 billion SAC Capital has gotten rid of many of its bond geeks, with a more narrow focus on fixed income and that may reflect more pervasive hedge fund trends…
