Greenlight Capital: David Einhorn Q4 2014

Greenlight Capital, logo, 2015

High activity which seems to be the standard behaviour of David. He jumps in, he jumps out, he jumps all around for a little while. Sometimes I even think that he is selling stock based on the letter that the company name starts with. But... as I said... it is only my feeling.

The new additions were:

California Res Corp - A Californian oil and gas company.

Chicago Bridge & Iron - An American infrastructure engineering company.

Covedien - By the look of it they already got swallowed by Medtronic.

Green Brick Partners - A real estate company.

Green Dot Corp - A prepaid reload (credit-like) cards company.

Halyard Health Inc - A medical technology company that is a spinn-off from Kimberley-Clark.

Kapstone Paper and Packaging - A packaging producing company.

Keysight Technologies - An electronics measuring and testing company.

Life Time Fitness - A health and fitness club.

Time Warner - A media and entertainment company.

TRIPoint Homes - a home building company.

Yahoo! - An internet and media company.

For the previous report regarding David see Greenlight Capital: David Einhorn Q3 2014.

Conclusion: 16 companies were kicked out! 16! The activity is very high at the moment and by the look of it they are hunting quicker profits instead of expecting that a company will gain a lot during a longer period of time. Looks like more speculation than hard core value investing to me. But David should do what makes him happy!
