Third Point continued its strong run in 2012 last month as it nears the $10 billion asset level for the first time.
The New York-based hedge fund said its $4.87 billion flagship hedge fund was up 2.4% last month and is up 13.8% on the year, ValueWalk reports.

Third Point is also investing in Greek stocks, and found success last month with Yahoo! Inc., Murphy Oil Corp., American International Group and Dolphin Capital Investors.
