 Portfolio Notes
 
 
With many good long and short ideas, Glenrock Global Partners continues in a fullyinvested (about 140%) gross position, but with only very modest (about 4%) net longexposure, in reflection of our deep concerns about plentiful risks in an overheated marketenvironment.
 
 
For the month of 
 July
, Glenrock lost
-1.5%
, as a material loss on the short side of theportfolio, combined with a lesser overall loss on our stub positions, narrowly overwhelmedoverall gains on our long positions.
 
 
In terms of geography, we lost money in Japan, Australia, Latin America, North America,and Africa, and made money in Europe and Asia Ex-Japan.
 
 
Our individual
winners
 
included a short in a US medical-device company; and long positionsin two US technology companies, US energy stocks, and a US forest-products company.
 
 
The biggest individual
losers
 
included short positions in a US retailer, a European consultingfirm, a US auto dealership, and a US medical-device company; and a long position in aBrazilian credit-card processor.
 
 
For the
 year to date
, the fund has only a very modest gain of 
1.3% in GGP QP and 1.4% inGGP AI 
. Clearly, what has been rewarded so far in 2009 has not been caution, but areflexive return to the speculative behavior and wishful thinking of the good old daysbefore the burst of the bubble, goaded on by the usual cheerleaders on Wall Street and,even more than usual, by US economic policy makers, in willful ignorance of present factsand probable prospects. We are disappointed with only having made very little money forour clients so far this year, but are also confident that we are protecting our investors fromthe many booby traps around, and hope to make up for lost time during the rest of the year.
