Story corrected to note Marathon Oil split into two companies in July
BOSTON ( TheStreet) -- David Einhorn, trying to make up for losses in his Greenlight Capital hedge fund, is turning to unloved stocks such as Huntington Ingalls (HII) and Aeropostale (ARO) for a second-half rebound.
It's hard to tell who's having a tougher year, Einhorn or the New York Mets, the baseball team in which he's seeking to buy a $200 million stake. Einhorn's hedge fund fell 5% through the second quarter, prompting him to shake up his investments. The Mets are 20 games back in the standings in the National League East division.
