Hedge Fund Managers Somewhat Less Bearish on Equities

Hedge fund managers were somewhat more welcoming of equities in March 2011. 36% of hedge fund managers described themselves as being bearish in March, a 4% decline from the month before. Hedge fund managers are still wary of equities given world events. 
“While hedge fund managers remain bearish, hedge fund investors are showering them with fresh cash,” Sol Waksman of BarclayHedge said in a statement.

He added that hedge funds posted their heaviest inflows on record in February, “which probably owes in part to superior performance.”

The Barclay Hedge Fund Index has posted a positive return for seven straight months.

A more bearish tone was set by natural disasters in Japan and growing violence in the Middle East and North Africa.

About a third of hedge fund managers were bearish on 10-year Treasuries, the survey found. At the same time, 16% considered themselves as more bullish about bonds. Both remain around the same levels as three months ago, the study notes. Source
