Steve Cohen Doesn’t Need Your Pity!

Steven A. Cohen is exiting the hedge-fund stage with a 2013 performance that is ahead of the pack. As the beleaguered hedge fund manager’s SAC Capital Advisors prepares to return outside money and manage only its billionaire founder’s cash beginning next month, it is closing in on a banner year relative to its peers. The firm’s flagship fund is up more than 20% through Dec. 27, a person familiar with its returns confirmed. Just this month, the fund is up approximately 2%, the person said. The median multistrategy hedge fund was up 9% through the end of November, according to the Absolute Return Multistrategy Index. [WSJ]

    Does that performance figure include legal fees and fines paid to the Federal government?

    I pity him for not buying Warren Buffett shares at the beginning of the year and doing nothing but riding the big Zamboni for the rest of the year. Return would have been better.

    "The median multistrategy hedge fund was up 9% through the end of November"…____Never struck me as funny until now: of course they're "multistrategy," since you can't depend on insider trading for *all* of your profits!
