Appaloosa Management is celebrating its 20th anniversary in much the same way it's spent the last two decades: with a triumphal investor letter.

The Short Hills, N.J.-based hedge told clients that it returned 17% in the first half, Bloomberg News reports. Appaloosa has posted annualized returns of 28% since inception.
