In a study of hedge fund performance according to investment style, covering 1,543 hedge funds over 10 years, ESMT’s research raises disturbing questions about the way that hedge fund investors invest and their willingness to actively chase performance at all costs, ...

gave his hawkish viewpoint on the economy, which was met with a solid hour of selling before a very small late afternoon bounce into the close.  His viewpoint consisted of an “unusually uncertain” economic outlook and that the economic recovery will be slow.  However, he did say he does not believe we will have a double dip recession. All in all, this testimony was very bearish and only adds more fuel to the sell-the-news reactions we have seen so far this earnings season.  While earnings have been quite strong, expectations were also low to begin with.  The main problem is we have not seen significant revenue growth therefore ... market research, surveys and trends

Style momentum within the S&P-500 index - Elsevier
Given the dramatic behavioral effects of winning and losing contests, and pronounced changes in stress and sex steroid hormones post-fight, it is reasonable to suppose that these hormones also dictate future behavior. We sampled water-borne cortisol, testosterone (T), and 11-ketotestosterone (KT) before and after contests in the mangrove killifish, Kryptolebias marmoratus , to determine how endogenous steroid hormone levels might predict and respond to contest dynamics or success. Pre-fight cortisol related negatively, and pre-fight T related positively to contest initiation and winning, particularly in the smaller opponent.

A piece-by-piece guide to financial overhaul law
WASHINGTON — Two years after the global financial system nearly collapsed, a vast revamping of regulation has been signed into law.

Regulators will take months to study dozens of issues in the 2,300-page law before drafting rules. Among them: ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
