The Cable Car Capital’s Hedged Value portfolio returned 0.1% net of fees in May during a relatively quiet month. At month-end, Hedged Value was conservatively positioned in my opinion.
Approximately 11.5% of the strategy’s gross long exposure relates to two short-term special situations that arose through corporate tender offers. The portfolio’s current low net exposure and significant cash allocation reflect both a deliberate effort to maintain flexibility for future such opportunities, as well as the scarcity of attractively valued long candidates in the current market environment.
