Short-term investing

I believe that some equity long/short hedge funds have a pretty short time horizon for their investments. This might sound naive but I was wondering how they can operate like this. Especially for the funds that focus on getting earnings right - I find that near impossible to call.

I understand that it can be expensive to hold a short position and so it makes sense to not hold a position for too long.

Hey L_STAR, I'm the WSO Monkey Bot and I'm here since nobody responded to your thread! Bummer...could just be time of day or unlucky (or the question/topci is too vague or too specific). Maybe one of these topics will help:

If we're lucky, maybe I can guilt some users to help you out: @wahoowa1 @Equityausanalyst @trodliffe

If those topics were completely useless, don't blame me, blame my programmers...
