Fossil Group Inc (FOSL): Are Hedge Funds Right About This Stock?

Page 1 of 2

Hedge funds and other investment firms that we track manage billions of dollars of their wealthy clients’ money, and needless to say, they are painstakingly thorough when analyzing where to invest this money, as their own wealth depends on it. Regardless of the various methods used by elite investors like David Tepper and Dan Loeb, the resources they expend are second-to-none. This is especially valuable when it comes to small-cap stocks, which is where they generate their strongest outperformance, as their resources give them a huge edge when it comes to studying these stocks compared to the average investor, which is why we intently follow their activity in the small-cap space.

Is Fossil Group Inc (NASDAQ:FOSL) a buy, sell, or hold? Prominent investors are selling. The number of long hedge fund positions were cut by 4 lately. FOSL was in 29 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of the third quarter of 2015. There were 33 hedge funds in our database with FOSL holdings at the end of the previous quarter. 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 Communications Sales & Leasing Inc (NASDAQ:CSAL), Central Fund of Canada Limited (USA) (NYSEAMEX:CEF), and Verint Systems Inc. (NASDAQ:VRNT) to gather more data points.
