if you multiply by 29004/6515, you get 58008, which spells "BOOBS" if you write it upside down on a calculator.

Some fund products are labeled as 130-30 (pronounced to me as one thirty - thirty). Essentially it's a long only style fund with a big of leverage and short positions allowed. Managers can invest up to 130% of the NAV of the fund long and go short 30% as a way to squeeze extra alpha out of their views (e.g. take short positions on stocks they think are going to do badly).
