The reputation of hedge funds as discerning investors has been tarnished over the past decade as their hedged returns have been unable to keep up with the unhedged returns of market indices. Our research found that small-cap hedge fund companies managed to beat the market every year in double-digit terms between 1999 and 2016, but in recent years, lead margins have been declining. However, we did manage to pre-identify a select group of hedge fund holdings that have outperformed the S&P 500 index funds by 115 percentage points since March 2017 (details here). We were also able to pre-identify a selected group of hedge fund holdings that were 10 percentage points behind the market annually from 2006 to 2017. Interestingly, the margins of these shares have been increasing in recent years. Investors who are long in the market and sell these shares were expected to return more than 27% per annum between 2015 and 2017. We have been tracking and publishing a list of these stocks since February 2017 in our quarterly newsletter.
