Crispin Odey’s European long-short equity fund deepened its losses for the year, plummeting about 20.5 percent in 2017, according to a performance document seen by Bloomberg News.

The Odey European fund, which is overseen by the hedge-fund manager himself in London, fell 8.2 percent in its Euro share class in December, the document shows. This follows the firm’s 49.5 percent slump in 2016, its worst annual decline since it started trading in 1992.

A spokesman for London-based Odey Asset Management LLP did not reply to phone calls and emails requesting comment.

Odey is known for his bearish bets and criticisms of central bank policies. Last summer, he was short on metal stocks in anticipation of slowing economic growth in China and also maintained that the credit cycle, fueled by loose monetary policy, had peaked.

Below is a summary of returns for Odey and other firms:

Top Heal Care Stocks To Watch Right Now

Resolute Forest Products (NYSE:RFP) is primarily involved in Newsprints, Specialty Papers, Wood Products and Market Pulp. As the downturn in global commodities intensified, RFP was not spared as all four of the company’s business segments got hit. Management has concentrated on lowering the cost of every segment but these actions were not enough to compensate for the deterioration of prices in their respective markets.

At year-end 2016, the market price of RFP was at $5.35 per share. At $5.35 per share, the market capitalization of the company is roughly $480 million dollars. As we have explained in the past, the company continues to have consolidated sales of close to $3.6 billion and in each of its major business segments, it is a global leader. It continues to be the biggest volume producer of wood products east of the Rockies, the third largest in North America for Market Pulp, the number one producer of newsprint in the world and the largest producer in North America of uncoated mechanical paper and an emerging tissue producer. With the exception of the Wood Products segment, which continues to have revenues of approximately $500 million, the other three segments each continue to have revenues of approximately $1 billion. We believe that each of the 4 business segments could fetch at least $400 million in a normal market, and as a result, RFP may be undervalued.

Yet even with a favorable attitude prevailing throughout most of the market, some stocks suffered setbacks.
