Who Were The Most Profitable Hedge Funds Of 2010?

The latest issue of Bloomberg Markets magazine has the answer to that burning question but first, let’s take a gander at who had the best performance, among large hedge funds.

Congratulations to all for jobs very well done. Unfortunately, with the exception of Bridgewater, none of the above made the sort of money that would qualify them for a spot on the most profitable list, which must be a kick in the pants. Here are the funds that did, which may have had something– not all just something– to do with a little thing that starts with a ‘char’ ends with a ‘ging a fuckton of fees.’

    Sure, laugh it up, but the writing is on the whiteboard. And let me also add that our Exceptional Value Fund’s returns prove “invest in what you know” works. So, sure, in our case that entailed going long EM dry-erase marker manufacturers and certain generic drug makers. But here’s a hot tip for you in 2011: LTD (three thongs for $20–hard to beat!).

    Thanks for letting me comment here today. You know, “success” comes after “struggle” and “strife” and as they say in Webelos, “sympathy” comes between “shit and syphillis” in Webster’s Dictionary. (Pause for laughter)

    I’d like to say that I would have made the list above if it wasn’t for the interference of the US Government in my profitable ways. As you all know, the market provides inestimable opportunistitities in quanted real time going forward vis a vis i.e. ergo and to wit. Somesuch actuarilistic algos can easily be used to re-quant the legacy trades that are so profitable among intermediate, longer-dated high frequency trading protocols. Why, just the other day I was doing due didligence on a mortgage-arbitraged, macro-strategized, activist event driven multi-strategy currency play and I asked the owner of the firm if he really followed the “motto” written in his foyer and he said, “It’s not a foyer; it’s an alcove..” and I said, OK, but do you follow it and he said follow what? and I said that writing on the wall in the reception area and he said that’s not a reception area because the satellites work better on the roof and I said, no, I don’t mean satellites, I mean do you believe what you stand for and he said I stand for hours at the office each day because of my hemorrhoids and i said that’s not what I meant and he said show yourself out and so I didn’t invest in his firm because he couldn’t define his overarching convexivity as pertained to my interest in his free cash flow.

    Good luck to you all, thanks for having me here today and do well.

    I have 234,000 “connections” on LinkedIn. Therefore I am better than anyone who has less. I hope all you recruiters are reading this.

    Wait a minute, I think there has been a horrible mistake…I did not see Nails Investments mentioned anywhere.

      Beat me to it – there should certainly be a category for investors that pulled themselves up by the bootstraps AGAIN and went from 10 digits to 8 digits and back to 10 digets in under 2yrs including obviously:

      1. Nails
      2. Gordon Gekko
      3. Donald Trump (NW is between $1 and $2.5B rechecking the math)
      4. Stephen Baldwin
      5. Bruce Wayne
