Big-Name Investors Get Long, Get Loud and Get Richer

What is in this article is so common that even I noticed it. Doesn't this count as some form of market manipulation? No illegal probably, but still unseemly?

Interesting age old question. However, folks from all levels of the financial stratum talk up/down the market/stocks/funds/sectors in one form or another, exactly where would you put the $ threshold for talk becoming "market manipulation?" Billionaires, millionaires, $678,452.45 net worth, based on income. And I wonder why the (financial) media report on the whale's statements - motivation? They could ignore it...

By the time I read of anything the ship has already sailed.
