Some of last year’s hardest-hit hedge funds have bounced back in a big way this year, with returns large enough to make last year’s losses a distant memory.
Glenview Capital plummeted 49% last year, a decline far worse than that of the average hedge fund, which lost about 20%. But the $4.5 billion firm, which focuses on equities, has soared 80% this year. And it isn’t alone.
Canyon Capital Advisors, the $7.5 billion distressed debt specialist, lost 28% last year. This year, it’s returned 56%, The Wall Street Journal reports.
