Five Rental and Leasing Companies Hedge Funds Are Bullish On

Page 1 of 3

Rental and leasing companies rent various equipment and products to consumers and businesses. Items that are usually rented out include cars, aircraft engines, heavy equipment and an array of other products. Rental and leasing companies are somewhat similar to real estate investment trusts, which buy properties, collect rent checks from tenants and then pass on the rent to investors in the form of dividends. For that reason, rental and leasing stocks are usually sporting dividend yields above average relative to the broader market. As for car rental companies in particular, car-sharing services such as Uber and Lyft are bringing disruption to the transportation industry. Having this in mind, let’s have a look at five rental and leasing companies favored by the hedge funds tracked by Insider Monkey.

At Insider Monkey, we track around 770 hedge funds and institutional investors. Through extensive backtests, we have determined that imitating some of the stocks that these investors are collectively bullish on can help retail investors generate double digits of alpha per year. The key is to focus on the small-cap picks of these funds, which are usually less followed by the broader market and allow for larger price inefficiencies (see more details about our small-cap strategy).
