David Einhorn: SunEdison in focus

h/t Palantir; Do you like investing in speculative companies with leverage up the wazoo, complex financial engineering, downside exposure to rising interest rates, backlog that may not materialize, uncertain returns, crazy execution risk and high valuations?

I do! So I have recently started a position in Sunedison Inc. This situation is complex, but my take is pretty simple, I’m investing in a security with about a 5-6% CAFD yield that I expect to grow at minimum 20%/year for many, many years. The YieldCo transactions with TERP and GLBL I expect to yield plenty of upside due to IDRs.

Down 50% in 30-days is a rough ride.
