In the Stock Market, a call is the right to buy. A put is the option to sell the underlying stock at a predetermined strike price until a fixed expiry date.
The put buyer has the right to sell shares at the strike price, and if he/she decides to sell, the put writer is obliged to buy at that price. When a person thinks a stock will go up significantly, he can buy a CALL, to lock-in a sale price. Conversely, when he thinks a stock will FALL in value, he can buy a "PUT"
So why did George Soros' Investment Fund think - in August 2017, just 8 weeks or so before the Mandalay Bay Massacre -- that the value of MGM Stock would FALL? Why did Soros Investments buy "PUTS" on 1,350,000 MGM Shares?
Did they know a mass murder was going to take place and tried to make money off it? Or did they ARRANGE the incident?
Filings by the Soros Investment Fund raise these questions, and I have the filings from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) below:
Soros manages an investment fund that has to file quarterly statements with the SEC to disclose its positions.
On 8/14/2017, he filed an SEC Form "13f." The one previous to that was filed on 5/15/2017. By looking at these two forms, we can see the changes made to the portfolio during that time.
When it comes to gambling stocks, Soros does not seem too interested, OTHER THAN IN MGM.
From the 5/15 Filing:
LVS (Las Vegas Sands, Sheldon Adelson's casinos) - Soros owned 5,000 shares.
WYNN (Wynn Resorts, Steve Wynn's casinos) - Soros owned 3,500 shares.
MGM - Soros held no position.
However, from the 8/14 Filing, we see some VERY interesting changes:
LVS - Soros sold 1,400 shares, leaving him with 3,600.
WYNN - Soros sold all 3,500 shares, leaving him with no position.
MGM - Soros bought put options, which means he was short the shares, (Meaning he felt it likely they would FALL in value) to the tune of 1,350,000 shares.

These reports beg some questions:
1) Why did Soros Investment Fund buy PUTS on 1.35 MILLION MGM Shares when it showed ZERO interest in MGM in the past?
2) What information did Soros Fund have to make it think MGM Shares would FALL in value?
3) Was Soros Fund information something they obtained from MGM Chairman James Murren?
The Chief Executive Officer of MGM Grand, James Murren, suddenly began selling-off his MGM Grand Stocks in the weeks BEFORE the attack took place! Why?
Did James Murren have prior knowledge that this attack was going to take place at the MGM-owned Mandalay Bay Casino Hotel? Did he know that the value of MGM stocks would plummet after the attack, and so he cashed-out before the attack happened? (Full Murren Story HERE)
Whenever a big incident takes place in the world, it's always important to FOLLOW THE MONEY. . . and ask WHO BENEFITS from what happened?
I have now followed the money; it's easy to see who benefits.
There are 59 Dead Americans and 527 severely injured Americans, and after the incident which caused this bloodshed, James Murren and Soros Fund Management were both in positions to either protect their wealth or to earn more wealth in the aftermath. This is all a little too convenient in my personal opinion.
I call on state and federal authorities to initiate a criminal investigation into these financial transactions. There is no Statute of Limitations on Murder, or Conspiracy to commit murder.
