Warren Buffett warned about the financial instruments that triggered the Archegos implosion 18 years ago 2021/04/02 15:04:38 Business Insider
Summary List Placement Archegos' use of financial derivatives helped it to increase its leverage that triggered a $20 billion liquidation and rattled financial markets. 18 years ago, Warren Buffett warned that derivatives are "financial weapons of mass destruction." In a 2002 Berkshire report, Buffett said derivatives were expanding "unchecked" and governments had no way to control or monitor the extreme risks posed by them. Sign up here for our daily newsletter, 10 Things Before the Opening Bell. The derivatives instruments that triggered the Archegos Capital Management implosion have faced scrutiny for years from regulators and some of Wall Street's biggest investors, including Warren Buffett. In the Berkshire Hathaway 2002 Annual Report , Buffett called derivatives "financial weapons of mass destruction carrying dangers that, while now latent, are potentially lethal." Archegos Capital Management's investments were partially concentrated in derivatives called a total return swaps. The highly leveraged trading strategy also had a role in the fallout of Long-Term Capital Management (LTCM), a hedge-fund that failed in 1998 and ultimately required a bailout from a consortium of Wall Street banks in order to prevent a widespread financial-market collapse.
Bill Hwang lost $8 billion in 10 days during the Archegos meltdown, reports say 2021/04/02 14:06:00 Business Insider
Summary List Placement Amid the largest melt down of a firm Wall Street has witnessed since the global financial crisis, it wasn't just banks that lost billions. Bill Hwang, the man behind Arcehgos Capital Management, also suffered a staggering $8 billion dollars in 10 days — one of the fastest losses of that size traders have ever seen, The Wall Street Journal reported . The massive selloff was largely felt on Friday last week when shares of media conglomerates and investment banks dropped off, sending shockwaves through the market and sparking fears of wider spread contagion. Japanese firm Nomura Holdings said it could suffer a possible loss of around $2 billion, while Credit Suisse Group , which has declined to provide a numerical impact, could see around $3 billio-$4 billion, according to reports. Hwang, who founded Archegos as a family office in 2013 , used borrowed money to make large bets on some stocks until Wall Street banks forced his firm to sell over $20 billion worth of shares after failing to meet a margin call, hammering stocks including ViacomCBS and Discovery.
These ViacomCBS Option Traders Think A Bounce Is Due 2021/04/01 20:29:12 Benzinga
ViacomCBS Inc (NASDAQ: VIAC ) stock has failed to rebound significantly following a four-day sell-off that saw Viacom plummet over 60%. The sell-off is attributed to hedge fund Archegos Capital Management liquidating its position. ViacomCBS, like a number of media stocks such as Discovery Communications Inc (NASDAQ: DISCA ) and Music Entertainment Group (NYSE: TME ), have also been the targets of traders in the r/WallStreetBets community who see the hedge fund liquidation as another financial assault against retail traders. ViacomCBS option traders may be betting other hedge funds and banks will be looking to build a position in these beaten-down stocks over the next weeks and months at discounted prices. The ViacomCBS Trades: At 9:40 a.m. Thursday, a trader executed a call block of 485 ViacomCBS options with a $40 strike price expiring on April 16. The trade represented a $293,400 bullish bet for which the trader paid $6.05 per option contract. At 10:27 a.m., a trader executed a call …
