Turtles for 2008

The Turtles that still publicly trade have returned these performance numbers over the first 3 months of 2008:

Jerry Parker: up 11%
Liz Cheval: up 17%
Tom Shanks: up 37%
Paul Rabar: up 13%
Howard Seidler: up 28%
Bill Eckhardt (Dennis’ former parter): up 14%
Salem Abraham (second generation Turtle): up 13%

No assurance it will continue, as they can be volatile, but the numbers are the numbers. And they are numbers people don’t expect when the nightly news and CNBC are yelling something quite different 24/7.
