Altice In Wonderland - Or, How To Trade Among Mad People

Patrick Drahi is having a bad year. So are his public equity co-investors. The chairman and controlling shareholder of Altice NV (OTCPK:ALLVF) has suffered a $4.4 billion (or 43%) decline in personal wealth so far in 2017. Still, his loss is less than the $6.6 billion (or 51%) damage ALLVF shareholders have suffered as the company’s market cap fell to the equivalent of $15.4 billion. The reversal in fortune has become so awful that, per the graph below, the stock market is valuing the entire Altice Group within $1 billion of the $14. (138-0)
