Array Biopharma Inc (NASDAQ:ARRY): Are Hedge Funds Right About This Stock?

Array Biopharma Inc (NASDAQ:ARRY) has experienced a decrease in support from the world’s most elite money managers in recent months.

If you’d ask most stock holders, hedge funds are seen as worthless, old investment tools of years past. While there are over 8000 funds in operation today, we hone in on the aristocrats of this group, close to 450 funds. It is estimated that this group oversees the lion’s share of the smart money’s total capital, and by paying attention to their highest performing investments, we have revealed a number of investment strategies that have historically beaten the broader indices. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy beat the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points per year for a decade in our back tests, and since we’ve began to sharing our picks with our subscribers at the end of August 2012, we have outperformed the S&P 500 index by 25 percentage points in 6.5 month (explore the details and some picks here).

Array Biopharma Inc (NASDAQ:ARRY)Just as beneficial, bullish insider trading activity is a second way to break down the world of equities. Obviously, there are plenty of incentives for an insider to cut shares of his or her company, but only one, very clear reason why they would buy. Many empirical studies have demonstrated the valuable potential of this tactic if shareholders understand what to do (learn more here).

Consequently, let’s take a peek at the latest action regarding Array Biopharma Inc (NASDAQ:ARRY).

Judging by the fact that Array Biopharma Inc (NASDAQ:ARRY) has experienced a declination in interest from hedge fund managers, it’s safe to say that there lies a certain “tier” of hedgies that decided to sell off their positions entirely at the end of the year. Interestingly, Wayne Holman’s Ridgeback Capital Management dumped the largest position of all the hedgies we track, totaling close to $11 million in stock.. JΘr⌠me Pfund and Michael Sj÷str÷m’s fund, Sectoral Asset Management, also dumped its stock, about $9 million worth.
