While the hedge fund world (at least those who are not lucky enough to be among the 250 who have access to is currently frenzied by the latest public revelations of attempted groupthink at the annual Ira Sohn conference, which Market Folly is doing a good job of summarizing in real time, Absolute Return magazine has compiled the returns of various managers' recommendations based on their 2010 picks. The big winners: Arbess, Eisman, Grantham, Dinan, and oddly enough Larry Robbins. The biggest loser by far was David Einhorn, whose once iconic cult of 13F clones appears to have lost critical mass. In the middle David Tepper, whose modest beat in Santander was more than offset by losses in Bank of America. Of course, nothing compares to John Paulson's thesis that BofA would hit $30 by the end of 2011. Full summary below.

Einhorn's 10+ year return is something in the ballpark of 25% annualized. This year is just a pixel and those listed picks are a small chard of what he actually owns.


BTW-I want to see Tepper suck on the gas pipe.

lets not forget the student in indiana who one the award for best idea for recommending Bridgepoint Education (BPI) as a buy. That put the stock up 12% today. Amazing that's all it takes to levitate a bucket-shop-online-call centre/for-profit-education-student-debt-bubble-blower.

How did Paulson think he'd be able to make $ when he couldn't rig the trade? How is that crook not in jail over the mortgage "trade of the decade" I have no idea. Friends in high places?
