He says now: ‘I am nervous. I think it is nervous time’
OK. His firm Appaloosa Managemen (hedge fund) was up 40% last year with only 14 staff members 
Now remember, he was the the #1 top income earner on the planet for 2013.. He only reported a paltry $3.5 billion.

So the question, is it auatomated trading decision? How about even going HFT? There is very little info here but considering the returns and portfolio size,
Considering minimum staff, how does one get these kind of returns? Any suggestions?
