  • David Einhorn's Thoughts on Vodafone, Green Mountain Coffee - Overview

In the course of the conversation, they also gifted the public with their thinking on some of their stock holdings. One of the most-followed, David Einhorn of hedge fund Greenlight Capital, devoted a portion of his Bloomberg interview discussing two in particular: Vodafone and a Green Mountain short.

  • The Long and Short of It: A Short History

    “The average man doesn’t wish to be told that it is a bear or bull market. What he desires is to be told specifically which particular stock to buy or sell. He wants to get something for nothing. He does not wish to work. He doesn’t even wish to have to think.” -- Jesse Livermore

    “To enjoy the advantages of a free market, one must have both buyers and sellers, both bulls and bears. A market without bears would be like a nation without a free press. There would be no one to criticize and restrain the false optimism that always leads to disaster.” -- Bernard Baruch  


  • The Long and Short of It

    The market is a wacky phenomenon that by all accounts acts independent of the way in which we perceive its supposed direction. In simple words, you can’t guess what it will do next. We cannot wish it into complying with our desires. The last several years have been extremely difficult for many investors, concerned about the overvaluation in stocks, macroeconomic issues, etc. What’s more perplexing is the noise from that entity known as Wall Street that cries that stocks are cheap and that all is well, while others sing the opposite story. Deep within, many of us have serious doubts and are waiting for something to happen, not knowing what that something may be. A pullback? A major downturn? A crash? Maybe it will keep going up and we will miss out while sitting on the sidelines.

    Benjamin Graham warned us of this very fact. His story of Mr. Market in “The Intelligent Investor”, shows a bipolar organism with a mind of its own that is not telling anyone what it is thinking. Mr. Market prices stocks at sometimes wildly different prices each day, and Graham summarizes with:

  • 3 Stocks David Einhorn Is Optimistic About

    David Einhorn’s Greenlight Capital letter surfaced last week, condensing holdings performance, short positions, new and closed long positions of the quarter and his market assessment. With the hedge fund manager’s initial victory wrangling Apple (AAPL) into sharing more cash with shareholders evening out as threat of competition and market saturation injected fear into the stock, and a market-performing short portfolio dragging down gains from a market-beating long portfolio, Einhorn added a 1.2% net gain to bring the year to date total to 7.1%.

    But Einhorn is more worried about the market going forward. He has cut exposure over concern that its continued gains in the face of lackluster earnings may create instability, reducing his fund’s risk of volatility and preparing for resulting opportunities.

  • Insider Buys at 52-Week Low Prices

    During the past week, four companies have reported insider buys as their prices have dropped to or neared a 52-week low. Looking at insider buys at 52-week lows can be interesting because (to paraphrase Peter Lynch) an insider will only put their personal money into the company if they think the stock price will go up.

    The following four companies reported insider buys at their 52-week lows:

  • David Einhorn's Most Active Insider Stocks

    As Peter Lynch has been quoted as saying many times: “Insiders might sell their shares for any number of reasons, but they buy them for only one: they think the price will rise.” So when insiders and gurus both buy into a company, it’s time to take notice. As a previous article written by GuruFocus discusses, insider buys of undervalued companies can sometimes lead to large gains, and value Gurus tend to buy stocks that are undervalued. So by finding the stocks that Gurus and insiders are buying, you increase your chance of finding a winner.

    As of March 31, David Einhorn held 38 stocks valued at over $6.5 billion. The following three companies are Einhorn’s most active insider buying stocks.  


  • David Einhorn's Top New Buys Still Appear Undervalued

    We can’t say for sure what David Einhorn’s exact analysis process is, but some of his largest adds of the first quarter still appear undervalued. Einhorn’s Greenlight Capital hedge fund rose 8.8% this year through May 31, 2013 compared to 10% for the S&P 500, and most of his new purchases of the first quarter have appreciated modestly. Given what a proven stock picker Einhorn is, the holdings could still have more room to increase.
