David Einhorn’s Greenlight Capital L.P. Returned 15.9% in 2010

David Einhorn’s Greenlight Capital L.P. returned 15.9% in 2010.  Usually financial websites compare hedge fund returns to major stock market indices, such as the S&P 500. However, they forget that some hedge funds are at least partially hedged and their market beta is nearly half of the general market’s beta. Greenlight Capital’s market beta is around 0.5, meaning if they didn’t have any stock picking skill, they would have returned about half of the market’s return. That’s not David Einhorn‘s problem- he managed to beat the market again this year, even though the fund assumed less risk.

GREENLIGHT CAPITAL

Einhorn’s Greenlight Capital L.P.  returned 36.9% in 2009, beating the S&P 500 index.
