Stanphyl featured in our second edition - had a great year - the letter from December starts off with returns, macro, then Stanphyl's favorite short followed by the small cap positions. We will post those right after the intro since we think readers will be more interested in those but the full letter can be viewed below and a PDF at the bottom to view it in order.
