Hedge fund manager David Tepper’s calls on the market have been confusing, to say the least. In May he said “Don’t be too frickin’ long, ” on stocks, last week he said the market was going to shake like it was 1999, and now he thinks 2015 will be a very good year, as reported by CNBC.
While he thinks the S&P 500 is “fairly valued” Tepper predicts stocks could rise 8 to 10% from the current level. Back when Tepper said “don’t be too frickin’ long” he was 70-80% positioned long in his fund. When asked what his next move will be, he said, “longer, ” and added, “It’s not the time to be careful now. Enjoy the ride … the ride hasn’t started yet. ”
