I have a hedge fund question that I have been thinking about for a little bit. Say you have a 20+ billion dollar hedge (i.e. where size is not an issue) and you start buying into stock ABC after a downtrend. Lets say it trades at $80 a share, with average daily volume of 5 -7million shares with a market cap of 50-75 billion. Lets say you add on 10 million shares. What type of return do hedge funds look for before they will consider to exit? For example, one of my strategy is a short term where I will buy these type of stocks to pocket a 15% move in a couple of days/weeks, can a hedge fun with that many shares afford to do this? Or will the slippage on entering and exiting cause the 15% gain to diminish to only say 5%? Can hedge funds exit such huge positions with ease, or do they have to have returns of 25%+ to even consider taking the position for short term investments?
