Dan Loeb Explains Why He Went Long Amazon, Disney In The Quarter He Returned As CIO 2020/08/06 19:10:30 Zero Hedge
Dan Loeb Explains Why He Went Long Amazon, Disney In The Quarter He Returned As CIO Tyler Durden Thu, 08/06/2020 - 15:10 There were several notable highlights in the latest Third Point investor letter published today. The first is that following an ugly first quarter to 2020, Dan Loeb's hedge fund returned 10.8% in its main, Offshore Fund (which however was merely half the broader market's return in the same time period). As Loeb notes, "following further gains last month, we have substantially reduced losses incurred during the First Quarter, bringing year‐to‐date losses for the Offshore Fund to ‐3.7% through July 31" although that too is below bow the return of the S&P500 and of the MSCI showing that even the world's best hedge funds are powerless to outperform the broader market when central banks themselves swoop in and take over capital markets in order to prop everything up. Also of note, in Q2, Loeb writes that the equity book returned ~9% on average net exposure of ~56%, with a 15% return in long equities offset by losses from short positions.
