David Einhorn Laments At Greenlight Annual Dinner: In 2018 “We Weren’t Right About Anything”Rupert Hargreaves
Last year, David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital recorded one of the worst losses in its 23-year history.
As has been widely reported over the past few weeks, Einhorn's flagship fund lost -34.3% in 2018 substantially underperforming the S&P 500, which lost -4.4% for the year. 2018 was the year "we weren't right about anything," Einhorn told his partners at the hedge fund's 23rd annual partner dinner.
