Tiburon Markets Overview

May, 2015

The Wounds and the Salves

Developed Markets ("DM") Flash PMI surveys suggest another bout of weakness in global manufacturing activity in early spring, driven by soft demand from Asia, particularly China (the Wounds). The ongoing weakness in industrial activity in recent years may be related to investment slump in DM countries. We expect central banks to remain supportive, with the Fed likely to be mindful of downside risks to export growth at the next FOMC meeting (the Salves). In Europe, finance ministers are still struggling to reach an agreement on Greece. The situation is set to remain fluid as the Greek government remains cash strapped.

Our near term view is for better US growth in 2Q15 and continued thaw in Europe. We expect a gentle rate rise in 3Q15 for the US and ultimately, something resembling a "deal" in Europe regarding Greece. There has been incremental growth in both Europe and the US (our two preferred markets at moment). However, despite myopic attention to any number de jour – most recently, jobs or retails sales (neither particularly good) - it still feels that consumption can pick up in 2Q15 and certainly in 2H15. The environment, despite the fears of TV pundits and doomsday scenarists, suggests a ripe near term harvest of catalysts that can drive outperformance regardless of the vagaries of sideways trading markets.







Tiburon Capital Management is an SEC registered investment advisor
and 100% employee-owned (and a Minority-Owned Business Enterprise)

Tiburon was founded by Peter M. Lupoff, an active participant in event-driven, deep value, credit and distressed strategies  for over 20 years and widely heralded as a pioneer in various aspects of the event-driven markets and investing. Tiburon Event-Driven portfolios are managed by Mr. Lupoff and Brian Swain - both experienced veterans in event-driven and deep value.

We seek to generate absolute returns with low volatility by exploiting market, documentary and competitor research inefficiencies and deficiencies.

How do we differ from others? Tiburon is agnostic 1)  Long or Short; 2) Among Securities - equities, bonds, options and 3) Among the myriad events, or Revaluation Catalysts.  Agnosticism in Mandate removes much of the moral hazard faced by those that need to believe in a particular market, cycle, security, industry or direction.

Tiburon portfolios are liquid and historically uncorrelated to larger "index-like" event-driven managers.
