In his letter to investors, Einhorn said that his fund had a "a frustrating quarter" in Q3 with his position in Apple as the only winner. Einhorn noted that while they didn't have any huge losses, Greenlight did get "ground down", but he plans to stay the course and remain patient.
It is clear that Einhorn is short Amazon, noting that the firm hasn't been able to realize the profits he would have liked to see now that growth has slowed.Source: Opalesque
