    • For what i know the total position was arount 27 mln sh with an average cost of around 150$/sh for a total investment of around 4 bln $ (four billion dollars)

      He has sold the position at around 11$/sh bringing back around 300 ml of the 4 bln invested. 

      Now is true that no one hit 100% and that you can be right 50% of the tine and still make money (depends on the magnitude of the winner and the loser) 


      If you bet so big (around 20% of his asset) AND you end so damn wrong (more then 90% of loss) i think the game (career)  should be probably over. 

      We will see what pershing investors will do.

      Just some personal thoughts 

      Best snow
