Sturgeon Capital gained 1.1% in September
After a steep 9.15% decline in August, Sturgeon Capital was up 1.1% in September. Like with many U.S.-focused hedge funds, the Asia-focused fund has had a rocky year. Sturgeon was in the red in all but four months of this year. By April, all the gains the fund captured in January had been erased, and then some.
