Who Is Reggie Middleton & What Is BoomBustBlog?

Since the inception of his BoomBustBlog, he has established an outstanding track record, including but not limited to, the call of....

  1. The housing market crash in the spring of 2006 and publicly in September of 2007: Correction, and further thoughts on the topic and How Far Will US Home Prices Drop?
  2. Home builders falling and their grossly misleading use of off balance sheet structures to conceal excessive debt in November of 2007 (not a single sell side analyst that we know of made mention of this very material point in the industry): Lennar, Voodoo Accounting & Other Things of Mystery and Myth!
  3. The collapse of Bear Stearns in January 2008 (2 months before Bear Stearns fell, while trading in the $100s and still had buy ratings and investment grade AA or better from the ratings agencies): Is this the Breaking of the Bear? | After the collapse, a prudent bullish call as well... Joe Lewis on the Bear Stearns buyout Monday, March 17th, 2008: "The problem with the deal is that it is too low, and too favorable for Morgan. It is literally guaranteed to drive angst from the other side. Whenever you do a deal, you always make sure the other side gets to walk away with something.  If you don’t you always risk the deal falling though unnecessarily. $2 is a slap in the face to employees who have lost a life savings and have the power to block the deal. At the very least, by the building at market price and get the company for free!" | BSC calls are almost free and the JP Morgan Deal is not signed in stone Monday, March 17th, 2008 | This is going to be an exciting, and scary morning Monday, March 17th, 2008 | As I anticipated, Bear Stearns is not a done deal Tuesday, March 18th, 2008 [Bear Stearns stock goes from $1 and change to $10, front month calls literally explode from pennies to several dollars]

  4. The warning of Lehman Brothers before anyone had a clue!!! (February through May 2008): Is Lehman really a lemming in disguise? Thursday, February 21st, 2008 | Web chatter on Lehman Brothers Sunday, March 16th, 2008 (It would appear that Lehman’s hedges are paying off for them. The have the most CMBS and RMBS as a percent of tangible equity on the street following BSC. The question is, “Can they monetize those hedges?”. I’m curious to see how the options on Lehman will be priced tomorrow. I really don’t have enough. Goes to show you how stingy I am. I bought them before Lehman was on anybody’s radar and I was still to cheap to gorge. Now, all of the alarms have sounded and I’ll have to pay up to participate or go in short. There is too much attention focused on Lehman right now. ) | I just got this email on Lehman from my clearing desk Monday, March 17th, 2008 by Reggie Middleton | Lehman stock, rumors and anti-rumors that support the rumors Friday, March 28th, 2008 | May 2008
  5. The fall of commercial real estate in general (September of 2007) and the collapse of General Growth Properties [nation's 2nd largest mall owner] in particular (November 2007):
    1. Will the commercial real estate market fall? Of course it will.
    2. Do you remember when I said Commercial Real Estate was sure to fall?
    3. The Commercial Real Estate Crash Cometh, and I know who is leading the way!

  7. The collapse of the regional banks (32 of them, actually) in May 2008: As I see it, these 32 banks and thrifts are in deep doo-doo! as well as the fall of Countrywide and Washington Mutual
  8. The collapse of the monoline insurers, Ambac and MBIA in late 2007 & 2008: A Super Scary Halloween Tale of 104 Basis Points Pt I & II, by Reggie Middleton, Welcome to the World of Dr. FrankenFinance! and Ambac is Effectively Insolvent & Will See More than $8 Billion of Losses with Just a $2.26 Billion
  9. The overvaluation of Goldman Sachs from June 2008 to present): “Can You Believe There Are Still Analysts Arguing How Undervalued Goldman Sachs Is? Those July 150 Puts Say Otherwise, Let’s Take a Look”, “When the Patina Fades… The Rise and Fall of Goldman Sachs???“andReggie Middleton vs Goldman Sachs, Round 2)
  10. The ENTIRE Pan-European Sovereign Debt Crisis (potentially soon to be the Global Sovereign Debt Crisis) starting in January of 2009 and explicit detail as of January 2010: The Pan-European Sovereign Debt Crisis

    I heard last week an expirienced wheat farmer from Kansas brought some land a few year back, and the soil turned out to be of poor quality, he could not get enough yeild to cover to even cover costs, so he had no choice but to sell the land this year. He expected to make a loss, to his surprize, he was offered TWICE what he paid for the land. He could not understand why, since it makes no economic sense, so he asked who the buyer was. It turned out to be a investor, desperate to get in to the agri-land price bubble. The futures market in wheat is no longer driven by fundemantals of supply, it is being distorted by speculators.

    Be aware that fundamentals are not the only thing that influences the agriculture business. The big agri-companies have interests that may - at times - run perverse of the expectations of small farmers, even if said farmers could create technology/processes that would dramatically increase yield.

    I'm not an expert in this field, but that is a risk that I see.

  • Comment Link sapocati Wednesday, 18 May 2011 10:06 posted by sapocati

    I do not think that this has to be a bad thing, if it brings investment in machinary and roads, there are alot of young people in Africa taking a real interest in agriculture and taking it to degree level, if these kind of investments leads to doubling or tripleing of yeilds, and giving those young people jobs then that is what capitalism should idealy be about.
    I suppose all depends on infrastructure investments like roads to bring down the cost of bringing local produce to local markets, and how well the land reforms are managed and regulated. I think with the revolutions in North Africa other governments in the region should start taking food security more seriously

  • Comment Link Razak Wednesday, 18 May 2011 05:09 posted by Razak

    Sapocati,you are very right and that is what is happening.They are using their printed money which does not have real value to buy thing with value and later they will gain because they know ahead of time that the paper money will be of no use.They have started purchasing lands here in Africa an also agriculture product.Knowing very well that the so the so called third world countries can barely produce to be self sufficient even in basic things like agriculture.They are giving money for land reforms here in my country and these banks now have turn into agro buying companies.

    I saw your item on ZeroHedge about real estate.

    We did some research in 2008 about the Dutch real Estate buble by collecting data from the internet.
    The leading financial paper was not interested even they knew we did some very good research on non commercial real estate with leading dutch newspapers. They came 2 years later with this news after the leading real-estate agent brought up the problem.

    As you can see you can add a price tag to the available real estate. Keep in mind in all estimates the only refer to offices, while this is a part of the total market.

    The write down has to be done on this sh**t has to be done jet.

    I saw your interview with M. Kaizer talking about JP Morgan borrowing at 0% I am not financially trained so excuse my ignorance, but my laymans understanding of the matter is that these types of outfits borrow printed money at 0% the real value of this money is minus and they know this so they rush out to spend that fake value on things that have real value, like mineing, agriculture, Oil esploration etc.
    Places like Brazil, Panama, Chile, Argentina, and many countries in Africa are being invaded by these super rich types looking to use their fake money to invest in things of true long term value. Correct me if I am wrong.
    This is what I do not understand about your hypothosis about JP M starving themselves.
    One more question does HNW stand for? what is a HNW investor?
    Many thanks

    Thanks for the supportive words. I think our country is better regulated, then again, that will entail overlooking quite a bit of what has gone on over the last decade, wouldn't it?

  • Comment Link gert-jan de jong Wednesday, 13 October 2010 07:23 posted by gert-jan de jong

    i saw the documentary about the 2007 collapse on dutch television with an interview with you in holland we have a kind of Lehman bank its called DSB its broke now and they deceived a lot of consumers for example an insurance for the morgage of € 40.000, € 30.000 of this amount was provision for the salesman thousands of dutch consumers were victim of this scheme.
