BOSTON, Jan 16 (Reuters) - Hedge fund manager David Einhorn told investors on Tuesday that he made several new bets, including a "large" one on Brighthouse Financial, late last year and that he made money on automaker General Motors but lost money on Amazon and Tesla .
Einhorn's Greenlight Capital bought into Brighthouse Financial, MetLife's former U.S. retail life-insurance business at an average cost of $57.92, according to a letter sent to clients and seen by Reuters. The stock is now trading at $63.90.
The fund manager also said General Motors, which was his firm's biggest winner last year, remains "significantly under valued" given the automaker's "impressive fundamental performance." (Reporting by Svea Herbst-Bayliss Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
