Methodology

Hedge fund returns are based on the weighted average returns of each fund's long stock positions that are disclosed in 13F filings. Our calculations excluded stocks that have less than $1 billion in market cap. The number of long stock positions are shown in the # of stocks field in the rankings table. Hedge funds that had less than 5 such stocks were excluded.

The calculated returns are proxies for the returns of each fund's long US book. These returns may be significantly different from each fund's actual returns because we excluded micro-cap positions, derivatives, cash, bond, and private positions of each fund. We also assumed that these funds haven't made any changes to their positions during the quarter. Funds that trade frequently may have significantly different returns. These calculations relied on stock prices from Yahoo Finance which may not be 100% accurate.
