Long short

A common investment strategy that combines both long and short security positions in the same portfolio. Hedge fund managers argue that a long-only portfolio limits the ability of a manager to exploit his or her skill. True, but the discipline if not the psychology required to manage short positions successfully is quite different from long positions. Above all, a short position that ‘goes wrong’ increases exposure to the security – the precise opposite of a failing long position. See hedge fund.
