Michael Burry Bets $1.6 Billion Against Market: ‘Big Short’ Investor Takes Bearish Stance on S&P 500 and NASDAQ



In filings with securities authorities released on Monday, renowned hedge fund manager Michael Burry, whose exploits were famously captured in the film “The Big Short,” took a bearish stance on the market. Burry’s Scion Asset Management shorted the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 for the close of the second quarter, wagering approximately $1.6 billion on an impending stock market collapse.

A New ‘Big Short’? Michael Burry Wagers $1.6 Billion Against QQQ and SPY

Michael Burry appears to be taking a bearish stance on Wall Street once more, with Scion Asset Management’s latest Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) 13F filing revealing a substantial acquisition of put options against Invesco QQQ ETF (NASDAQ: QQQ) and SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NYSEARCA: SPY).

It was around this same time last year, in August 2022, when Burry began to predict a multi-year recession in the United States, adopting a more bearish outlook.

In March, Burry likened three major bank collapses to the Panic of 1907, and the latest SEC filings indicate that Scion eliminated exposure to Western Alliance Bancorp and Pacwest. As August 2023 progresses, both the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 have retreated against the U.S. dollar, shedding 2% to 3% respectively this month.
