In the eyes of most traders, hedge funds are assumed to be underperforming, old investment tools of the past. While there are more than 8,000 funds in operation, hedge fund experts at Insider Monkey look at the aristocrats of this group, represented by around 700 investors. Our research revealed that hedge funds underperformed in recent years because of their short positions as well as the huge fees that they charge. Hedge funds managed to beat the market on the long side of their portfolios. In fact, the 15 most popular small-cap stocks among hedge funds returned 123% since the end of August 2012 and beat the S&P 500 Index by almost 66 percentage points (see more details here).
