I’ve posted this hedge fund report a few times in the past but it has never received much love. In contrast, the weekly insider report I post seems to get pretty good attention.
What a lot of people probably don’t realize is that hedge fund activity is probably more predictive of future returns than insider activity. The reason is that hedge funds (a) have large research budgets, and (b) have a choice where to put their money. In contract, insiders have no choice where to put their money, but only when to time their transactions.
I’ll post this report once again to see if anybody finds it interesting.
These are the latest Schedule 13D forms filed by activist investors in the last 7 days. Activist investors are investors that make an investment with the intention of influencing management in some way. There is evidence that following activist investors into investments can generate excess returns.
