The finance world is abuzz with news that Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) founder Elon Musk has made a proposal to buy social networking platform Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) in a deal that values the firm at around $43 billion. This equates to almost $54.20 per share for the firm, per a securities filing by Musk that he shared on his Twitter profile as well. On April 14, Jim Cramer, a former hedge fund manager and the host of Mad Money on CNBC shared his thoughts on the matter, noting that Musk had put the Twitter board in a position where they would reject the offer.

Cramer, who has built an impressive retail investor following in the past few years, was of the opinion that the board of directors at Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) had “no choice” but to reject the Musk offer because if they accepted it, it would be akin to “phony” behavior. Cramer added that he thought that the board members were not phonies. Cramer also warned of a “personal liability” should the Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) board accept the offer, noting that this was one of the instances where directors could be opened up for a level of lack of fiduciary that “crosses the line”.

Musk is the richest man in the world and one of the most controversial characters in the finance sector. On April 14, famous entrepreneur Mark Cuban tweeted that he thought that Musk was only offering to buy Twitter to drive up the share price and then sell his stake, something that he had done with other firms in the past. During his take on the issue, Cramer also stressed that accepting the Musk offer was not fair to Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) shareholders. Cramer also blasted the use of the “best and final” term that was used with the offer to buy.

Apart from talking about Musk, Cramer also discussed the broader economic outlook during his show on April 14. He talked at length about sectors that were facing the worst of the storm as interest rates rose and investors exited growth firms for safer heavens. Some of the stocks that Cramer is bearish on include Meta Platforms, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB), Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX), and AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T).

10. Green Brick Partners, Inc. (NYSE:GRBK)

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 12

Green Brick Partners, Inc. (NYSE:GRBK) is a home building and land development firm. Jim Cramer discussed the stock during the Lightning Round of his show on April 14, giving it a negative mention. While answering a question related to the firm, Cramer said the stock was related to housing. He further noted that people did not want anything to do with housing equities in the present economic environment.

On March 10, JPMorgan analyst Michael Rehaut downgraded Green Brick Partners, Inc. (NYSE:GRBK) stock to Underweight from Neutral and lowered the price target to $20 from $26.50, noting that the relative valuation was “expensive” relative to his outlook for below average return on equity in 2022 and 2023.

At the end of the fourth quarter of 2021, 12 hedge funds in the database of Insider Monkey held stakes worth $587 million in Green Brick Partners, Inc. (NYSE:GRBK), compared to 16 the preceding quarter worth $392 million.

Just like Meta Platforms, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB), Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX), and AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T), Green Brick Partners, Inc. (NYSE:GRBK) is one of the stocks that hedge funds are monitoring.

In its Q1 2021 investor letter, Black Bear Value Partners, an asset management firm, highlighted a few stocks and Green Brick Partners, Inc. (NYSE:GRBK) was one of them. Here is what the fund said:

“Green Brick Partners, Inc. (NYSE:GRBK) is a residential land developer and homebuilder. Most of their operations are in Texas, Georgia, and Florida. Green Brick Partners, Inc. (NYSE:GRBK) was formerly a private partnership between Jim Brickman and entities related to Greenlight Capital (managed by David Einhorn). David is currently the Chairman of the Board.

As discussed earlier, there is a long-term fundamental supply/demand imbalance in housing inventory. This is a direct result of underproduction of new homes amid a challenging mortgage financing environment over the last 10+ years since the Great Financial Crisis. Looking forward we should have increased housing demand from millennials as they enter the family-phase of life and desire more space.

It is rare to be able to partner with an excellent operator and an excellent capital allocator. As evidenced by our investment in AutoNation, when you marry those 2 concepts you can wind up with a wonderful result. Green Brick Partners, Inc. (NYSE:GRBK) has been reinvesting their cashflow in additional lots/land inventory. This masks the earnings power of the company. The company is valued somewhere between 5-8x steady-state earnings and potentially even cheaper than that. I tend to be more conservative given the potential for rate rises and inflationary increases in development costs. We have high-quality stewards at both the operating and Board level.”
