David Tepper Reunites With CNBC


Squawk Box invited Appaloosa Management’s David Tepper on for a repeat of the love fest that caused a market rally this past September. Though sparks were definitely flying (“Who is that badass,” host Joe Kernan purrs, when a college photo of Tepper in Steelers black is shown. “You’ve never looked better,” he says of another photo), they have thus far failed to ignite another rally, even though the brass-balled hedge-fund manager notes, “The world’s getting a little better,” he’s not quite as bullish as he was in the fall.
