Hedge-fund manager David Einhorn had a second straight small monthly loss in February, lagging some other managers in the industry, according to the investment results of Greenlight Capital Re Ltd. (GLRE), a reinsurer that invests its premiums with Einhorn.

Einhorn, who runs hedge-fund firm Greenlight Capital, is also chairman of Greenlight Capital Re, which reinsures property and casualty risks.

While most reinsurers plow premiums into bonds and other credit-related securities, Greenlight Capital Re invests almost all its premiums with Einhorn, who specializes in long/short equity trading.

Einhorn was down 0.8% in February, after a smaller loss in January. That left him 1.4% down so far in 2011, according to a disclosure on Greenlight Capital Re's website.

Einhorn's largest disclosed long positions at the end of February were: Cardinal Health Inc. (CAH) , CareFusion Corp. (CFN) , Ensco PLC (ESV), gold, Pfizer Inc. (PFE) and Vodafone Group PLC (VOD, VOD.LN), according to the disclosures.

A month earlier, his largest disclosed long holdings were: Arkema SA (AKE.FR, ARKAY), Delta Lloyd NV (DLLLF), Ensco, gold, Pfizer and Vodafone Group, according to the disclosures.
