Thursday's Headlines: Hedge Funds are Healthy and Small Guys are Making Ground

While hedge fund headlines may have seemed dire, "the industry as a whole has seen capital levels rebound from the lows of a few years ago," writes DealBook. While big-name funds have shuttered, smaller funds have benefited from an inflow of funds. Case-in-point: Vector Commodity Management, run by ex-Goldman trader Gilbert Saiz, is said to have gained 8.2 percent in February on its $258 million, beating much bigger rivals.
