DrK,
I'm glad someone is following the finer details!
I agree, re- Seth Klarman (Trades, Portfolio) average price bought and sold , indeed would have made a loss on eg. Alere Inc.
The manor in which the data is presented anchors readers thoughts to a large gain of 70% rather than losses of circa 20-25%.
Current stock price does not equate to the value of the stock when sold!
This is a red herring data column and should be scrapped unless a true reflection of profit or loss on holdings is shown on both free and professional formats!
Great website although be careful of drawing false conclusions!

The way you show "Gains" in the holding history of a guru makes absolutely no sense - you are calculating it as "price paid" vs. "current stock price". This is NOT the gain mthe Guru made, and can HIDE actual losses. Example: Seth Klarman (Trades, Portfolio) the way you calcute gain made more than 20% gain for the stock Alere Inc. (ALR) because you are comparing his price paid to the current stock price rather than to the price he sold out for. In reality he made a LOSS when selling it. THIS MUST BE CORRECTED - your information is misleading!

Why is your most recent performance data from 2001 - it's now 2014! How are we (and you) to rate Klarman when the most recent GuruFocus performance data is 13 years old? For all we know, his track record over the last 13 years could be 5% lower than the SP-500 index and yet he's listed as a Guru.

59% Tech weighting while the Nasdaq makes all time highs? This is going to end in tears.
