Anyone know how bad his 2008 #'s were?
Also, how badly has he performed since it began?
Anyone post a list? These would be good stocks to short.
this was a couple months ago:

The best "trade" of his entire lifetime was probably quitting his hedge fund in 2000. This guy rode up a historic rally all the way to the top and managed to get out at the top, (allegedly) putting the majority of his net worth into muni bonds. A real achievement.
He would have been eaten alive in the professional money management game in 2002 and 2008.
