Page 1 of 2

Xerox Corporation (NYSE:XRX) has seen an increase in enthusiasm from smart money lately.

According to most shareholders, hedge funds are viewed as unimportant, outdated investment vehicles of yesteryear. While there are more than 8000 funds with their doors open today, we choose to focus on the leaders of this group, close to 450 funds. Most estimates calculate that this group has its hands on the majority of the hedge fund industry’s total asset base, and by paying attention to their highest performing picks, we have deciphered a few investment strategies that have historically beaten the broader indices. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outpaced the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points a year for a decade in our back tests, and since we’ve began to sharing our picks with our subscribers at the end of August 2012, we have topped the S&P 500 index by 23.3 percentage points in 8 months (check out a sample of our picks).

Various empirical studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this tactic if shareholders understand where to look (learn more here).
