Third Point, whose hedge funds soared between 32.8% and 41.7% last year, stayed hot in January. The New York-based firm's funds all posted returns in excess of the broader markets on the month.

Third Point's returns were obtained by Dealbreaker.com.
Investors with Greenlight Capital, which also enjoyed a frothy 2010, got somewhat less good news. The firm's Offshore fund lost 0.6% in January, Dealbreaker reports.
