NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The Ira Sohn Conference is the hedge fund industry's most prestigious conference, with the likes of Bill Ackman, David Tepper, Jeffrey Gundlach and others slated to speak and give investing ideas.
The six-hour Ira Sohn Conference puts a shine on the investment ideas of billionaire investors. In 2012, Doubleline Capital's Gundlach announced he was short Apple (AAPL - Get Report) as part of a pair trade with natural gas, though he later told TheStreet exclusively he long Apple in 2013. Gundlach has also said he was short Chipotle Mexican Grill CMG at the conference, a call that had mixed results.
In 2014, Gundlach was bleak on home ownership, noting that housing starts may have peaked forever.
