Today, the marketplace offers a daunting array of investment choices. Rapid market globalization, technology advancements and investor sophistication have spawned a host of new asset classes, from the mundane to the mysterious. Even neophyte medical investors can now buy and sell international equities, emerging market debt, mortgage securities, commodities, derivatives, indexes and currencies, offering infinitely more opportunities to make, or lose, money.

Market Neutral
The year was 1999. Bill Clinton was in the White House, Ricky Martin was on the radio, and Kathryn McDonald was in Orinda, Calif. learning to hate the term "irrational exuberance." "That was a pretty difficult time," recalls McDonald, then a senior analyst with AXA Rosenberg Funds. As one of the first to offer a "market neutral" mutual fund to investors under the $1 million net worth threshold, McDonald's company couldn't have been more out of sync with the times.

was one of the worst in history, but investors in the Calamos Market Neutral Fund, a mutual fund, hardly noticed. With annual total returns averaging a solid, if unspectacular, 8.4 percent from 2000 through 2002, the bear market was business as usual for them and for many other market-neutral fund investors. Indeed, removing the excitement — both good and bad — from market fluctuations is what market-neutral investing is all about.

What does equal weight and over weight mean in the stock market ...
The answers about 'benchmarking' are correct, but I think you want something a bit more specific here.
