Argentiere Capital

Unfortunately, Argentiere Capital is a new hedge fund that has been named after a ski resort. I say "unfortunately" because I hate skiing and the awful fucked-up ponces who go skiing - especially those who can't really afford it but just want to look like one of the super-rich. (I'm talking mainly about financial journalists who enjoy schmoozing with fund managers. I'm sure you know the sort, dear reader.) Well ...

Having said all that, I reckon Deepak Gulati is a nice guy, so I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt. 'Who's Deepak Gulati when he's at home, Mikey?' He's the founder of the hedge fund! 'Hedge fund?' Argentiere Capital! 'Oh, right. Sorry, man. I had a rough night. I - ' Voice, I don't want to hear about your rough night, okay? Just piss off, please.

Yeah, I reckon Deepak is all right. I'm not going to give him a hard time over the name of his hedge fund. I think he's trying to raise $500 million. Actually, he might still be at JPMorgan. He's the bank's top proprietary stock trader or something. I wish him all the best anyway.

As for the skiing journalists, I monitor various Twitter accounts to see what these arseholes are getting up to. In previous years, they couldn't stop wittering on about their holidays, but they seem to have gone quiet lately. No doubt they're worried about how it looks in the present financial climate. / I suppose they're reasonably wealthy, which is why I can't take them seriously when they write about THE POOR. As if they could ever have a FUCKING CLUE. And a lot of them claim to be socialists. You've got to laugh ...

No offence to any journos reading, of course. I'm just in a very angry mood this morning. I had a rough night last night. Oh, blame Deepak.

Well, fuck it. Laters ...
