The Fund's position in Quicksilver (KWK) declined 19% for the second quarter and 33% for the first six months of the year, making it the largest detractor for both periods. The oil and gas exploration company had positive news that it closed on an agreement to sell 25% of its Barnett Shale assets to Tokyo Gas at a price that is in line with our appraisal. Several challenges, however, weighed on the stock, including failing to refinance all of the company's debt and persistently weak natural gas liquids prices.

From Mason Hawkins' semi-annual 2013 report.
