About $50 billion are now invested in 130/30 strategies, led mostly by pension funds, according to a new Merrill Lynch report. (The strategy is to first put 100% into an index like the S&P 500. Then sell short 30% in stocks expected to do worse than the market. Take the proceeds from the short sales to go long stocks likely to beat the index.)
