BOSTON ( TheStreet) -- David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital initiated stakes in multimedia conglomerate CBS (CBS - Get Report), carmaker General Motors (GM - Get Report) and semiconductor company Marvell Technology (MRVL - Get Report) in the third quarter as the hedge fund bucked the stock market's sharp decline.Despite the benchmark S&P 500 Index's 14% drop in the quarter, which was marked by violent market swings, "our conservatively managed portfolio essentially went sideways with much lower volatility," decreasing 1.2%, Einhorn said in a letter to hedge fund shareholders this week. Greenlight will report third-quarter holdings next week, which will give a fuller picture of his investments.
