"Stocks Have Gone Up Due To The Fed" Carl Icahn Warns "It Will Come Home To Roost"

In an awkwardly uncomfortable non-cheerleadery few minutes on CNBC this morning, he-who-must-be-listened-to (when he is buying stuff and not selling it) - Carl Icahn - dropped a few truth bombs on an unsuspecting Scott Wapner. Starting with warnings about energy sector debt, fearing a surge in defaults and "what management can do to hurt you" if you own that debt, Icahn then moved on to discuss today's ECB move and its implications. Confirming his "extremely cautious" stance to the overall market, Icahn explained how "the reason the stock market has gone up is because of the Federal Reserve," and now the rest of the world is jumping on the bandwagon "with all this issuance of money," and the implicitly strengthening USDollar "will come home to roost at some point." While not pointing to a specific point in time, Icahn concluded, "you do have to be extremely cautious and we have hedges on.. and it's too early to buy oil stocks/bonds."
