The article examines the positive performance of hedge funds in 2000 compared to the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the Standard and Poor's (S&P) 500 index, and the Nasdaq market system. "Market-neutral" or "absolute-return" hedge funds have become a viable option for corporate portfolios, so long as the true absolute-return hedge funds can be identified.
