"Everyone makes a big brouhaha about disclosure, but I don't see what the big deal is. We disclose everything there is to disclose every quarter and it has never hurt our performance. And the only way that any investor can really be sure of what they are investing in is if the fund manager decides to disclose all of its positions."
