Hennessee: April Challenging but Hedge Funds Advance

West Palm Beach (HedgeCo.net) – Hedge fund adviser, Hennessee Group LLC, announced that the Hennessee Hedge Fund Index advanced +3.84% in April (+5.02% YTD).

“April continued to be a challenging environment for hedge funds, as the market rally was driven by short covering and momentum, rather than changes in fundamentals,” commented Charles Gradante, Co-Founder of Hennessee Group. “While we have seen some improvement in data (most typically that the rate of deterioration is slowing), most funds remain conservatively positioned. Funds are cautious and will wait for fundamentals to improve before significantly expanding their net exposures.”

“Hedge funds underperformed again in April, but have still outperformed year to date. Volatility remains elevated with the S&P 500 experiencing a gain or loss greater than 8% each month this year,” said Lee Hennessee , Managing Principal of Hennessee Group . “Last year hedge funds did a good job of protecting capital, so they don’t need a huge rally to reach a new high water mark. Equity markets would need to double from current levels to reach their previous high.”
