Should Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:CCO) investors track the following data?

If you were to ask many of your fellow readers, hedge funds are assumed to be overrated, old investment vehicles of an era lost to time. Although there are over 8,000 hedge funds with their doors open in present day, this site looks at the upper echelon of this group, close to 525 funds.

Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outperformed the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points per annum 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 trumped the S&P 500 index by 33 percentage points in 11 months (find the details here).
