Has anybody looked at the returns and expense ratios for the 5 funds? Horrible performances. Awfully high expense ratios. Am I missing something here?

Seems like some call writers are on the verge of a nervous breakdown?

The performance analysis of the flagship fund, Hussman Strategic Total Return (HSTRX), tends to be a function of one’s perspective and timeframe. Some may consider annualized 10-year return ~5% with, what looks like average risk ~1/5th of the market, pretty decent. Of course, the jury is still out on the latest efforts to time the market.

Remember, those funds have a lot of expenses, buildings, staff, bonuses and perks for the managers and directors. As an insider in one of the biggest asset managers in LA recall the Top Fund Manager telling the CEO "...but we are 2 points above the benchmark..." and answered "... so you think its correct to sell to people telling you will loose 7% instead 9% this year?" "Thats what we are paid for? for people to lose?" .Felt like a lightning stroke me. Never looked at the same way that guy
