    What will he say now?!

    Clearly he is totally screwed. S&P up 143% while his fund is down. How can anyone possibly rationalize this?

    • I think he'll say that the unemployment reports don't matter so much because they're lagging not leading indicators, although the weekly jobless claims have been pretty good as well. I think it will be difficult to justify his hedging policy as, assuming no change in the share price, his 10 year total return will turn negative in about 6-12 months. It seems like it would have been beneficial to stay in cash or bonds(I don't even know if the fund can do that, but individuals can) versus being fully hedged.

      • I'm more interested in what kind of excuses he will make for the 4 year return on his fund. S&P up almost 150% in the past 51 months, versus his significant decline. It must be in the worst 0.0001% of all performers.

        I know that he keeps blathering on about the "complete market cycle", but at some point even he has got to admit he's the worst manager of all time.
