Hedge-fund bubbles are not nice

Reader Sushil B. offers this chart from Business Week on hedge fund returns. (link)

Bw_hedgefunds

Unmoored bubbles, slanted text, positive and negative returns undifferentiated, bubble within bubble, paired data scattered apart, and it's not even that attractive.

 

Here is a Bumps-chart style version of this data:

The author never explained how the five funds were chosen so it's hard to know what's the point of the chart. It appears like Harbinger Capital Partners had a similar experience as Paulson. In addition, given the potentially huge gyrations from year to year, it's very odd that we are not shown the annual returns between 2007 and 2011... we can't be sure that some of the three other funds suffered a particularly bad year in between the end points shown here.

Thanks for sharing. I would really love to learn more about the consumer proposal in Edmonton. I don't know much about it, but it sound interesting.
