Hedge fund bears regained a dose of confidence at an annual gathering of industry managers in London on Thursday.

While most of the bets at the Sohn investment conference were long, three were short ideas and one was an arbitrage play. That’s slightly more bearish than last year, when only one speaker braved going short. Those investors that acted on 2018’s stock tips would have been largely rewarded -- eight out of 10 are in the money a year later.
