Greenlight Down 0.9% In November

Dec 2 2010 | 2:34pm ET

Like many hedge funds, Greenlight Capital's string of strong monthly performances came to an end in November.

The New York-based hedge fund lost 0.9% last month, according to a reinsurer led by the hedge fund's manager. Greenlight Capital Re, which invests almost all of its premiums with Greenlight, said its portfolio—and, reason has it, the hedge fund itself—is up 6.8% this year, somewhat better than the average hedge fund.

The Greenlight disclosure also shows that Einhorn is holding firm on his holdings. The top five haven't changed, except that pharmaceutical giant Pfizer has joined the others as a top six.
