Reducing Exposure

Reducing Exposure

It’s always useful to read the musings of the more reputable global hedge fund managers.

In Dan Loeb’s Third Point 3Qtr letter he notes; “We do not see indicators of a looming U.S. recession and so, while volatility is likely here to stay and multiples may be capped, we are seeing some compelling value opportunities in stocks. The environment for short selling is also attractive and we have more single short names than long positions in our book today. We have reduced our net exposure by nearly a third through sales and new shorts over the past few months while maintaining significant positions in our highest conviction, event-rich names. The conviction to keep and add to our core healthcare names during the selloff enabled us to re-establish ourselves on positive footing this month.”

We note that Loeb’s fund returned negative 8.9 per cent for the quarter. The Montaka Global Fund, returned positive 13.87 per cent in Australian dollars for the same period.
