Occasionally I take a look at the US listed alternative funds. Below is their performance year to date. With equities down around 4%, many of the alternatives have put in good performances. Standouts include Diamond L/S (DIAMX) and Dreman Value (DHG, still trading at a -13% discount) in the long/short category, and TFS Market Neutral (TFXMX) and Highbridge (HSKSX) in the market neutral category.
