check out their charts. It's consistently down, down, and yet more down.
It's hard to find a single year when they didn't lose money.
If there was a way to short his funds, i'd be all over it.
I think you would be as unwise to short his funds as it is to hold TNA.
That really doesn't say much. Conceptually both could be a good idea and be consistent with how you phrased it.
Regardless, I think both are a good idea, betting against Hussman and holding a leveraged Russel 2000 small cap fund.
Anyway, Hussman's signature growth fund has lost on average more than 9% per year over the last 5 years.
