Hey, Randall Lane, You Sick Twisted Son Of A Bitch, Remember Me?

Photo Of Randall Lane By Chester Higgins Jr./The New York Times

Note: Aside from the last paragraph this post is written following the journalistic style of Randall Lane—treating assumptions and circumstantial evidence as fact. It’s cruel, amateurish and immature—oh yes, I know—but that basically sums this guy up so in order to help him grow up, he must be given a taste of his own medicine.

To those who don’t care and just want stock picks—this is also a great lesson on how to pounce when your enemy is wounded, no different than the vultures who took out Bear or LTCM.

Last time Randall Lane, editor-in-chief of Traitor Monthly was in Page Six, he was attacking a small-time trader (me) because his magazine staff fumbled, disinviting me from their little party at the last minute after we’d been discussing my covering the event for MSN Money for days.

Clearly in the wrong, this balding bastard was forced to go on the offensive, charging my hedge fund’s losses were the result of my publicity hounding rather than bothering to research the matter like a responsible journalist might do (turning his nose up at the complimentary book I’d sent him weeks before that explained the situation in detail) and running his arrogant mouth off to the press, confident of favorable treatment due to his connected Forbes wife.

Now, just a few months later, the tables have turned as Lane himself was fired as publisher of the Player’s magazine by Lenny “Nails” Dykstra who called Randy boy out on what he’s becoming known for, trash talking when he doesn’t get his way: “If you want to fight, take me on. Don’t go behind my back and bad mouth me,” said Dykstra. “He thinks I’m going to buckle,” said Dykstra, referring to Doubledown President Randall Lane. “I don’t buckle – I go to war.”

This time—in what commentators have hailed as a landmark event for Page Six in terms of accuracy–not even Lane’s old lady could save him from Page Six judging him to be their #1 loser last week.

The fight concerns expensive parties, overspending and missed payments, which is nothing new to stupendously shallow Traitor Monthly—backed by several Traitor haters who came out to express themselves in full force in THIS article. Sorry Traitor, but you didn’t listen to me last October when I warned you about the dangers of your business model:

Now, as you say, my fund’s performance has been ‘laughably horrid’ and I am wiser for it. While unfortunate, these losses have made me an infinitely better person and I am forever changed. Instead of curling up in a shell as you apparently believe would be appropriate, I intend on showcasing my losses, so that others may learn from my mistakes and not be condemned to repeat them. To help people truly learn about all the risks and rewards associated with financial speculation, I will use my self-promotional skills to the fullest, cutting through the superficial and ultimately harmful lifestyle you so proudly promote.

Randall, as much as I used to want to be a part of your trader community, I’ve now experienced how you treat people when they are down—it’s disgusting. No, I’ve outgrown your juvenile ways. Unlike your frivolous magazine, my book celebrates trading not just for its ability to create great wealth, but also for its potential to teach great lessons—lessons you seemingly look down upon.

Apparently, you’ve forgotten that traders, especially those of us under the age of 30, are works in progress. And when you turn your back on a fellow trader, you turn your back on trading itself. And when you turn on trading, you no longer are worthy of running a magazine called ‘Trader Monthly.’ Perhaps you should change the title to a more fitting description, ‘Traitor Monthly.

Sorry to say, I was too emotional then as I somehow forgot to include this gem of a quote, “The ideal reader, according to editor-in-chief Randall Lane, “is 29 years old, making $400,000 a year, and spending all of it.” (Wow)

So Randy, I know times are tough for you right now—no doubt bringing back memories of when your first magazine, P.O.V., went out of business—but unlike you I’m willing to give second chances to those who make mistakes. After all, we’re only human. If you can show some remorse for your actions, I’ll consider taking you on at my publishing company, BullShip Press, LLC—as an unpaid intern of course—and under my guidance, I think we’ll be able to put you on a more righteous path—no promises, there’s a whole lotta work to be done, but if you’re willing to change, I’m willing to help you get better. Contact me anytime.

  • YngvaiMalmsteve

    Millionairemind, I think Tim said to ignore IAR as a short opportunity because you don’t short earnings breakouts. There’s nothing wrong with going long on an earnings breakout, though, as long as you take your profits quick…I’ve noticed earnings breakouts tend to fizzle quick.

    Goose, other than not being up enough QI does look like a TIM play.

    It’s not a solar company though; QI is a chip manufacturer (SDRAM). Times are tough for SDRAM manufacturers apparently because they are posting HUGE losses (-2.11/share missing estimates of -1.67 per share).

    It qualifies because it is up on a fluff press release that hypes that they are purchasing wafer media from LDK Solar (a competitor), and that they are partnering with another company to get into the solar market.

    Looks like a desperation move to me.

    Rambone, put your limit in WAY above any price that can accidentally trigger your trade before you want it too. Then when price action warrants you to ideally enter your order, you CHANGE your original limit price to a figure that will get executed…I think there may be a how-to in existence somewhere, if not, plenty of examples in this blog. Tim just accidentally had a trade get accidentally executed because his limit was wrongfully entered. He discusses in the past few blog entries.

    Does that make sense? So you’re making an order request, it shows up in your account as an untriggered order, then CHANGING the existing order’s limit price when you want the trade to actually execute.

    Short shot, the problem with VSCI is that the increase has been pretty gradual. VSCI also has earnings coming up so it may just be a run-up into earnings. Probably not a good short opportunity.

    Okay, who is getting into VRML, PDO, ASIA, LGDI tomorrow??? I am prepared to rock it! I think we have a good day in store with some nice red prints on the close and plenty of selling orders place for the AM>….I guess that could exclude ASIA, but its kinda topped I guess, or looks like it.
    Anyone else in PDO?

    Any thoughts?

    HItrader, i like VRML–obviously–and maybe PDO and maybe LGDI (a litte less), but def not ASIA as its still a breakout. PDO and LGDI only a little cuz both are on bad exchanges for short selling and have already sucked in lots of short sellers even while consolidating only a bit…tough to short oil and a company where promoters can really come out with multiple waves of spam

    sykes hater1, give him a year to be cleaning his moms house for money? Try his over 10 years with money making. Where are you returns? As a great representative of all those on the “street” I’m sure you’ve “never” lost money. Sykes and Cramer do pretty well with their strategies and do even better helping others out. I can gaurantee neither of them give a thought of what you truly think, as I’m sure both are more well off than yourself. And go ahead and keep hatin, your only going to make all of us experienced and those just starting, better traders.

    Go fuck yourself. Your arrogant. Your lame. You have no balls. And you waste everyone’s time with your big-ego, amateurish, garbage posts.

    I don’t think anyone really gives two-shits if Tim failed. He’s human, it happens, get over it! The most important lesson Tim learned (which I give him HUGE PROPS FOR and is why I follow him) was not giving up! It’s easy to hide and put your tail between your legs when you’re #1 and you have a bunch of foney fucks like you kicking him while he’s down. Well, I got news for you… he ain’t done any more!

    It takes courage and balls to do what he’s doing; why bother explaining though, you spinless, coward, mutant types wouldn’t have a clue anyhow.

    You’re scum. You’re a bum. Piss off.

    noobtrader, congrats on the 100 dollar profit, that wasnt a complete waste of time or anything. If you knew anything about trading you would know that your messiah here is doomed for failure. NO ONE takes him seriously,one of these days you will figure this out. As far as being arrogant goes, ive been making money steadily since day one which was 11 years ago so if that makes me arrogant so be it. This guy has no balls, if he did he would be at a real hedgie or IB with the best and brightest and showing them what he can do. Instead he takes potshots at us cause he cant play in the mans game.
