    Their stock picks from Q3 filings performed even better.

  • Apple Calls, Google Amongst Billionaire Einhorn's Newest Positions [View article]
    He usually doesn't use options. I suspect these must be short-term call options (not longer than 6 months). He was probably concerned about short-term declines in Apple stock but he is a long-term bull.

  • Billionaire Mario Gabelli's Top Stock Picks For 2013 [View article]
    Hi Eli,

    We usually include a link to each fund manager's page on Insider Monkey which has their entire 13F portfolio, the changes in each position compared to the previous quarter, the list of other hedge funds in each position, and the history of each fund's 13F filings. We just started tracking Mario Gabelli this quarter and will include his filings in our database in our next update (next week). Until then here is the link to his latest 13F on SEC's website:

  • Hedge Fund Manager Whitney Tilson's Latest Stock Picks [View article]
    Zerohedge made fun of him for a year after he bought NFLX below $100 (some of those purchases were made aaround $60).

    His track record in NFLX is mixed at worst.

  • Chuck Royce's Newest Holdings For 2013 [View article]
    Thanks Eli!

    Writing about small-cap stocks doesn't bring a lot of pageviews but these is where investors have to be looking to generate significant alpha.

    Check out the link in the first paragraph. Hedge funds are much better at picking small-cap stocks than large-cap stocks.

  • Billionaire Bruce Kovner's Largest Small-Cap Positions [View article]
    We have done our own analysis of many of the top funds' top small-cap holdings to determine a list that has proven to generate substantial alpha. Over the past 5 months, this method has returned 25.4% vs. 7.4% for the S&P 500 (learn more about our hedge fund small cap strategy here). http://bit.ly/WQrEeN

  • David Einhorn's Huge Secret [View article]
    How is Berkowitz winning? The stock market is up 40% since Einhorn started shorting the stock. How much did JOE return since then?

  • David Einhorn's Favorite High-Dividend Stock [View article]
    If you follow the first link we provided in the article, you will see Einhorn's latest 13F filing. You can also see Einhorn's previous 13F filings by selecting them from the drop-down menu. 13F filings are made quarterly, so the 28% negative change represents the quarterly change in the position.

  • Dump Your Hedge Funds And Buy This Stock [View article]
    Alexander,

    First, our analysis covers the 2008-2011 period. The market was almost flat during these 4 years.

    Second, we already know that hedge funds were great investors before 2007. As their assets under management swelled they started investing in larger and larger-cap stocks. If David Einhorn's large-cap stock picks can't outperform the market you shouldn't expect much from other HF managers.

  • The Top 10 Metals Stocks Loved By The Hedge Fund Industry [View article]
    I don't know but here is why they may be acting this way:
    1. Management may not be caring about investors at all (i.e. empire building)
    or
    2. They are focused on the long-term and think that this is a good long-term move even though they have to overpay for the deals.

    FCX is paying a premium for these two stocks, so it is natural that they take a hit. Another factor is merger arbitrage. Now hedge funds will be buying PXP and shorting FCX to hedge the risk.
