Soros: It takes courage to be a pig. When asked about the most important lessons that Stan Druckenmiller learned from George Soros, he says: I've learned many things from him, but perhaps the most significant is that it's not whether you're right or wrong that's important, but how much money you make when you're right and how much you lose when you're wrong. The few times that Soros has ever criticised me was when I was really right on a market and didn't maximise the opportunity. Soros has taught me that when you have tremendous conviction on a trade, you have to go for the jugular. It takes courage to be a pig. It takes courage to ride a profit with huge leverage. As far as Soros is concerned, when you're right on something, you can't own enough.
Wise words indeed. I've you're going to take a swing, make it a big one.
Come on Alex - I think your getting carried away with all the baseball from the weekend ;-)
