|Praipus, this might be of general interest - posted on CLLN thread.
Intend digging a bit deeper on this, the number of LLC's entering UK market seems to be on the increase, or perhaps my research is now highlighting shorted companies?

The short side catches everyone's attention due to the percentage size, however how many of the shorts are un-hedged?
I ask this as traditional hedge funds are generally considered to be 'hedged' or market neutral hence the name.
looking very briefly at another stock, I picked out AQR to try and see what their motivation might be, one of their funds can be seen here:
"The Fund is designed to be market neutral, targeting a portfolio beta to equity markets of zero over a normal business cycle. We construct the portfolio based on our global security selection and asset allocation models, employing the following indicators:"
What I would like to establish is how they go about off setting short positions, are they trading pairs for example or other instruments to balance things out?
Not sure if AQR are short of CLLN but they do pop up regularly on other stocks either short or in arbs.|

Related topic, wonder how hedge funds will cope with Dow running away?
What do hedge funds need:
* Extreme over or under valuation?
* Emerging Economic and political trends?
Are these present in the deepest markets of the world today?
I suspect business as usual for most Hedge Funds collecting their 2% of assets under management and 20% of any year on year gain without too many concerns.|

Interesting reading even though the list was made in 2014

|Thanks Ben, I hadn't realised that about CFD's economic interest only.
Http://www.internationalgreetings.co.uk/shareprice.html Shows Soros with 7.32% in September 2013.
I've looked at the RNS again and I think they are sells or reduced economic interest.
The trade on the 14.1.2014 has an economic interest of circa 5.49% and the trade disclosed on the 15.1.2014 is only 3.74% quantum reducing or creating a smoke screen IMO :-)|
|They are buys P,
but a bit misleading as CFD's don't come with voting rights, however they show on the RNS that they have allocated the size of the order by showing it as a % of voting rights!
|Quantum fund at it again but I cant decide if these are buys or sells :-)
|Soros/Quantum Partners LP adding to GAW?
|One of those what have I been doing with my life moments...
World leading philanthropists to be honored with Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy
|Think I am right in saying that Quantum now have 6.84% of DSC as from yesterday.|
|Thanks Skyship sorry for delayed response just not enought hours in a day or a lifetime to keep up:)
3LEG added as per SafetyMargins comment on the WAM thread. Thank you.|
|P - I see you have Soros/Quantum holdings in P.No.1
Another of his more recent holdings is the 5.7% stake bought in propco Development Securities (DSC). He bought in Jan'13 at the current share price of c147p.
The share price jumped quickly by c15%, but has retreated back to his entry level over the past two months. The prelims and webcast yesterday confirm the great value - a 41% NAV discount. Plenty of analytical chat on the DSC thread.

|Taken from ACD's Annual Report to 31st Dec'12:
During 2012, the net asset value per share increased by 9.7 per cent to 103.38p (taking account of dividends paid). Total shareholder returns were also up 9.7 per cent comprising a share price increase of 4.5p to 86.0p and total dividends of 3.43p paid during the year.
This once again makes AcenciA the best performing listed fund of hedge funds over one, two and three years, on both an absolute and risk adjusted basis.
For Q1'13 ACD grew its NAV by 3.81%
I'm sure most of us on this thread already hold ACD; but if not, then time to take a detailed look at the ACD thread. They are in liquidation mode and look likely to return 14%-15%pa over the next two years to liquidation in Q1'15.|
|The Dow Jones Credit Suisse Hedge Fund Index Finished Up 1.21% in March
|Picked some up this morning good arb opp
think should be at least another 5% in this trade short term.|
|Good news I think. I think a Fledgling strategy was a reasonably good one in that there are some excellent under-priced companies in the index, but there is also some rubbish. The managers at Henderson on this trust are not the best. A move to Diverse Income Trust is a better move, I think + the discount should disappear.|
