Dan Loeb quotes 2Pac

Clearly in a good mood after a +6.8% 3rd quarter, Dan Loeb of course quotes Thucydides ... and 2Pac's song "Keep Ya Head Up" to describe his $9.3B hedge fund's approach to Greek bonds. Presumably puzzling many Third Point investors.

"I'm tryin' to make a dollar outta fifteen cents."

Maybe when European debt turns in a poor quarter he'll need to quote Biggie's 6th crack commandment instead. Somehow it's not surprising that the two had different views on distressed debt investing.

"That goddamn credit, dead it
You think a crackhead paying you back, s*** forget it." 

What other songs do you think should be featured in investor letters? 

Cam's uncle comes to mind. 

"Can't get paid in a earth this big?
You worthless kid, Cam don't deserve to live."

Loeb's reasoning on Greek and Portuguese debt seems pretty persuasive to me. I like the increased focus on distressed debt. YHOO, AIG and GLD are more obvious - investors can evaluate and buy them without paying Loeb 2 + 20.

Third Point is listed on the pink sheets as TPNTF and in London as TPOU/TPOE/TPOG - I wonder if anyone on CAPS owns shares.

Loeb, Ackman and Simons are among the few decent hedge fund managers ;) I would be about on that level if I had a hedge fund. Maybe ;)

Anyone that has even the slightest interest in biopharma investing should follow me and some of those I follow on twitter. I think :)

And I need a few new followers to get to > 300. Come on guys, you have lost enough money with silver and gold mining stocks ;)
