  • Hear the Latest Investment Ideas From Top Hedge Fund Managers
    If you want to receive stock picks and investment ideas from the very hedge fund managers we cover on this site on a daily basis, then this is the event for you: The Value Investing Congress. We've secured a special discount for Market Folly readers where you can receive an $1,800 discount to the event with code: N10MF4.

    Long-time readers of the site will know that we frequently cover the portfolio moves of some of the top hedge fund managers in the game. Here's your chance to hear their latest investment ideas in person. Speakers at the Value Investing Congress on October 12th & 13th in New York include:

    David Einhorn: His hedge fund Greenlight Capital has returned 22% annualized last we checked. At a past Value Investing Congress, he told attendees about his short position in Lehman Brothers. Obviously that play turned out very successful.

    Lee Ainslie: At the end of 2009, his hedge fund Maverick Capital had returned 14.2% annualized since 1995. Maverick has grown from $38 million to well over $10 billion and is one of the premier fundamental stockpicking hedge funds out there.

    Kyle Bass: He and his firm Hayman Capital have predicted two massive bubbles. Firstly, he predicted the subprime mess and profited handsomely. Secondly, he was one of the first to call for sovereign defaults, which we're starting to see play out. Find out his latest macro call at the upcoming Value Investing Congress (special discount here).

    John Burbank: His hedge fund Passport Capital has had a volatile ride, but has managed to return 23.6% annualized. If you want some of the best plays based on macro themes, he's your guy.

    Not to mention, other speakers at the event include: Mohnish Pabrai (Pabrai Investment Funds), J. Carl Cannell (Cannell Capital), Amitabh Singhi (Surefin Investments), Zeke Ashton (Centaur Capital), as well as Whitney Tilson & Glenn Tongue (T2 Partners).

    Click here to receive a special $1,800 discount to the event with code: N10MF4. It takes place on October 12th & 13th at the Marriott Marquis in New York City. This discount expires in 8 days so take advantage of it while it lasts!
