Tyler Durden's picture

Someone must have had an odd sense of humor to name a conference in which the most prominent US hedge funds appear, after Robin Hood - it seems in the New Normal the prince of thieves takes from the Middle Class and gives... to himself. Snyde remarks aside, yesterday was Day 1 of the Robin Hood investor conference, with such speakers as David Einhorn and Dan Loeb putting on their best book-talking face and pitching their currently marketable ideas (which they have put on long ago and are likely selling into strength). Below is a summary of the top recommendations from Bloomberg.

  • Greenlight’s Einhorn - long Micron (MU)
  • Third Point’s Loeb - long Softbank (9984 JT)- owns $1b position
  • Eagle’s Witmer - long Wyndham (WYN)
  • Chilton’s Chilton - long WR Grace (GRA)
  • Lakewood’s Bozza - short Opko Health (OPK)
  • Pine River’s Kuhn - short Progressive (PGR)
  • North Tide’s Laughlin - long Amedisys (AMED)
  • Axel’s Nikolayevsky - long SolarCity (SCTY)
  • HG Vora’s Vora - long Pinnacle (PNK)
  • Maverick’s Ainslie - short Great Wall Motor (2333 HK)

But that was just an appetized for today when the big guns come out, including: Bill Ackman, Tiger’s Julian Robertson, Duquesne’s Stanley Druckenmiller, Tudor’s Paul Tudor Jones, Glenview’s Larry Robbins, JPMorgan’s Jamie Dimon and... Whitney Tilson pitching African real estate?
