Buy High, Sell Low

Investors in TFS Capital's Market Neutral Fund continued to buy high and sell low as a group in the four months ended October 31st, as I've documented for previous periods. The gap between average buying and average selling prices was greater that in the first six months of the year at 81 cents (vs. 41 cents). More than ten times as much was also received in early redemption fees (for shares held less than six months). The total shares in the fund continued to increase very significantly at 28.6 million vs. 17.4 million at the end of June. The fund now has twice as many shres as in mid 2007 even though the number of shares on issue declined significantly in the second half of 2007.
