Hedge Funds Performance

Nuclear-powered Thunder tops the AR database in October


Richard Greene’s Thunder Capital made impressive gains in October from investments in three Canadian uranium mining companies.

In October, Thunder Capital Management’s bets on uranium mining companies earned the small Clearwater, Fla. hedge fund the top monthly return in the AR database. The firm’s Thunder Energy Partners Fund rose 28.2% for the month.

Uranium, the chief element used in civilian nuclear power plants, is currently trading at $57 a pound, and due to an increased demand for the element around the world as more power plants are being constructed, founder and portfolio manager Richard Greene believes the price of uranium will continue to rise.

Operating with this view, Thunder gained another 23% through November 11.
