Acuta Capital Partners, LLC rode a surge in health care stock prices to the top spot in 2nd quarter hedge fund performance.
The dubious distinction of worst hedge fund performance in the 2nd quarter -- based on equal weightings of 13F positions -- goes to Tiger Pacific Capital LP. An equal weighting of the fund’s 14 positions returned -21.69% in the quarter, according to WhaleWisdom.com
when 13F filings were published in mid-May of 2018, it showed that for the first time since its IPO, more funds reduced FB holdings over a quarter than added shares. In Q1, 192 more funds had pared-down FB positions than had increased FB shares (left). While not a huge shift in institutional sponsorship, this indicator was possibly the canary in the coal mine, signaling that FB’s relentless institutional buying momentum had stalled.
Turns out Warren Buffett and Jimmy Buffett are not related. For years the world’s third richest man and the “Margaritaville” singer-songwriter thought they might share ancestors. But DNA testing has apparently ruled that out.
