Update: see picks from the 2012 Delivering Alpha conference here.

Maybe mimicking brand name hedge fund managers really does pay off. Investors would have a little more alpha in their portfolios had they copied ideas from Leon Cooperman, Dan Loeb and even Phil Falcone last fall. Their picks and others from the first Delivering Alpha conference, a collaboration between Institutional Investor and CNBC, have shot up since they were recommended in September 2011 (see chart below based on a CNBC summary of event picks).
