MSCI Index Posts Third-Straight Month Of Possitive Returns

Oct 5 2006 | 5:04pm ET

The MSCI Hedge Invest Index posted its third-straight positive month in September, though returns for the month were less than half that of August. After an ugly May and June, when the index dropped 1.08% and 1.27%, respectively, the fund posted positive returns of 0.22% in July, 0.43% in August and 0.18% last month, pushing the year-to-date return to 3.29%. Still, on the year it badly lags the Standard & Poor’s 500, which has returned better than 7%.
