The IPO was completed in July with CNX selling a 21.1% stake of CNXC to the public and an additional 21.1% stake to Greenlight Capital in the private placement.

They have been granted the right of first offer to acquire the remaining 80% undivided interest in the complex if they choose.

  • David Einhorn Adds to Positions in General Motors, Bank of New York Mellon

    Value-oriented hedge fund manager David Einhorn (Trades, Portfolio)’s Greenlight Capital produced annual returns of 29% in its first decade of existence. Returns have been lower in recent years, but they have remained in positive territory.

  • David Einhorn Continues to Add Micron Technology to His Position - Should You?

    Let's take a look at Micron Technology Inc. (NASDAQ:MU), a $27.18 billion market cap company, which provides semiconductor solutions worldwide. The stock delivers a negative return of more than 52% on a year-to-date basis. This crash is alarming for me, but it seems that some hedge fund managers take the opposite direction. Perhaps the reason behind this bullish sentiment is the fact that the stock has outperformed the market in 2013 and 2014.


  • Watch the Apple Event Live

    Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has introduced some of the world’s most innovative products and landed in the portfolio of many prominent value investors. It is the fourth most-held tech stock of gurus followed by GuruFocus, and the 14th most-held S&P 500 stock overall. Some gurus have also made it the top position in their portfolios, such as David Einhorn (Trades, Portfolio), and Carl Icahn (Trades, Portfolio), for whom it forms the first holding behind his own company.

    Consequently, many will be watching the Apple Event Wednesday to get the first look at what new products, upgrades and announcements the company has in the pipeline.


  • Market Continues to Look Expensive After Low August Returns

    August was undoubtedly a tough month for the market, with share prices plunging on Aug. 18 and leading to a selloff on Aug. 21, reaching what some consider the first meaningful correction in years.

    At the close of trading on Aug. 21, the S&P 500 fell 3.2% or 64.84 points to 1,970.89. According to the S&P Dow Jones Indices, the index lost $1.14 trillion in value that week. The DJIA was down 530.94 points to 16,459.75. Macro concerns that may have led to the selloff include Greece’s ongoing financial troubles, including its default on an IMF loan on June 30. China’s economic instability, however, gradually overtook Greece in the headlines, and was also blamed for spooking investors, as the country unexpectedly devalued its currency.


  • Greenlight Capital Re Is A Fantastic Bargain

    David Einhorn (Trades, Portfolio) is one of the more recognizable names in the investment industry. His firm, Greenlight Capital, has consistently posted market-beating returns over most of the past decade. While it’s costly to invest directly into his funds, there is a way to cash in on his investing prowess.

    Greenlight Capital Re (GLRE) is a publicly traded reinsurance company that Einhorn controls. The company insures property-and-casualty risks. It can then use its earnings and insurance float to largely follow his hedge fund’s strategy. However, this hasn’t been working out very recently.
