Och-Ziff Capital Management remains one of our top long ideas in the alternative asset management space. Tailwinds from QE3 combined with solid operational performance are a key driver for the stock. Management continues to impress with solid returns for 2012 with the OZM Master Fund (70% of AUM) up 11.18% for the year. While fund flows were negative for December by approximately $450 million, they were positive for the full-year at $300 million. We expect 2013 to offer strong inflows of capital for OZM in addition to strong performance numbers. We sold OZM this morning in our Real-Time Alerts but continue to like the stock - we're just managing the risk and the range.
