I'm a little confused about why the big short investor Michael Burry was visited by the SEC. When going over his archive of tweets he rails against tesla, robinhood and warns of a bubble in the market; what I don't understand is why he would be visited by the SEC for expressing his opinion on twitter.
Isn't this literally what the pundits on CNBC do all day? All I ever hear on that channel is "Buy, Buy, Buy," whereas Burry's tweets have substance behind them. For example, he warned about inflation in February and as of April 2021 it has begun to hit the markets. Also, when does someone become to big to express their opinion about the market?
