A Year Ago, Some Of The Top Investors In The World Gave Out Their Best Stock Picks — Here's How They Did

Business Insider

The highly-anticipated Value Investing Congress, a two-day event where top hedge fund stars present their best investment ideas, kicks off next Monday in Manhattan. 

Clusterstock will be there keeping you up to date with all the latest news and trade ideas coming from the conference.  

In the meantime, let's review how the investing ideas presented last October did.

These ideas were shared on October 17 and October 18, 2011.  For this report, we used data from Yahoo! Finance and tracked the stock's performance from the day the idea was announced through today.  

In case you're not already familiar with investing terms, "long" means you're buying a stock because you think the value will go up.  Shorting a stock is the opposite.  It means you're selling borrowed  shares of stock with the expectation that it will fall.
