He said his shop has been quite slow these days, for the third quarter, his company has not bought any new stocks other than Sprint (S), which he finished buying. He talked about his long positions: Sprint (S), Apple (AAPL), Pfizer (PFE), Vodafone (VOD), and Carefusion (CFN) and short positions: St. Joe Company (JOE) and rating agencies – Moody’s (MCO) and S&P parent company, McGraw-Hill (MHP)
