Market Scramble: A tale of two hedge funds

TOKYO -- The outlook for Japanese equities remains mixed even as the benchmark index rallied more than 1,100 points in the three trading days since Sunday's upper house election. The divergent assessments of two major hedge funds are a case in point.

Effissimo Capital Management is bullish despite the broader hedge fund industry falling on hard times. It has been buying Japanese stocks left and right, including Dai-ichi Life Insurance, marine shipping company Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha and Japan Display.
