Are Hedge Funds Betting on GoPro’s Acquisition?

Page 1 of 2

Among the early movers today is GoPro Inc (NASDAQ:GPRO), as the mountable camera maker’s stock has gained around 3% so far today, on a volume slightly above average. The stock’s appreciation comes on the back of a few comments regarding GoPro Inc (NASDAQ:GPRO) by Northland Capital’s Gus Richard. Northland Capital reiterated its ‘Outperform’ rating and a price target of $80 and Richard has pointed out that GoPro’s nature of business could make it an acquisition target for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL).

Today’s performance of GoPro’s stock was fueled also by the comments in a Wall Street Journal column by Dan Gallagher, who stated that at this valuation, the stock looks more attractive to investors, trading at a 16 times forward earnings.

The good news regarding GoPro’s potential is also supported by the hedge fund sentiment on the stock, which is very optimistic and does not fall in line with the stock’s performance, which suggests that the decline was an overreaction.

We are interested in 13F filings of a pool of over 730 hedge funds, because we use them to determine the top 15 small-cap stocks held by them. We gather and share this information based on 16 years of research, which showed that these 15 most popular small-cap picks have a great potential to outperform the market, beating the S&P 500 Total Return Index by nearly one percentage point per month in backtests, and easily beating the most popular large-cap picks of funds, which nonetheless get the majority of their collective capital. Why pay fees to invest in both the best and worst ideas of a particular hedge fund when you can simply mimic only the very best ideas of the best fund managers on your own? Since the beginning of forward testing in August 2012, the Insider Monkey small-cap strategy has outperformed the market every year, returning 118%, nearly two times greater returns than the S&P 500 ETF (SPY) during the same period (see more details).
