NOT SO MUCH “HEDGING” IN HEDGE FUNDS THIS YEAR…

With the S&P 500 up about 1% this year after dividends and the long bond generating a whopping 31% return it’s safe to say that the hedge fund industry hasn’t added much value this year.  As of 12/16 all of the major hedge fund strategies are in the red for the year (via Thomson Reuters):

“A decade ago, hedge funds consolidated their reputation by offering investors safe haven from market turmoil and generating returns in tough times. Not now, however. Not a single major hedge fund strategy is on track to end the year with a profit, with only a week or so left of trading. Worst hit were the value strategies, with many cheap stocks – like banks – proving to be value traps, just getting cheaper with every month that passed.”
