Do Hedge Funds Love Procter & Gamble Company (PG)?

Page 1 of 2

Legendary investors such as Leon Cooperman and Seth Klarman earn enormous amounts of money for themselves and their investors by doing in-depth research on small-cap stocks that big brokerage houses don’t publish. Small cap stocks -especially when they are screened well- can generate substantial outperformance versus a boring index fund. That’s why we analyze the activity of those elite funds in these small-cap stocks. In the following paragraphs, we analyze Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG) from the perspective of those elite funds.

Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG) shares haven’t seen a lot of action during the third quarter. Overall, hedge fund sentiment was unchanged. The stock was in 58 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of September. The level and the change in hedge fund popularity aren’t the only variables you need to analyze to decipher hedge funds’ perspectives. A stock may witness a boost in popularity, but it may still be less popular than similarly priced stocks. That’s why at the end of this article, we will examine companies such as Pfizer Inc. (NYSE:PFE), Toyota Motor Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:TM), and Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) to gather more data points.
