Hedge Fund Marque Millennium’s Top Stock Picks

Page 1 of 2

Marque Millennium Capital is a New York-based hedge fund founded by Wilfred Meckel. According to the official website of the fund, over the past 24 years it has shown superior results with its long-only, large-cap oriented relative value strategies. Most of its stock picks are based on one important assumption, which is described thusly “…over time, the stock market will value the current fundamentals of a company as it has valued them in the past”. In simple words, Marque Millennium buys a company when its price is lower than the historical value for companies with similar fundamentals. According to the most recent 13F report for the June 30 reporting period, the fund’s public equity portfolio holds $192 million in equities. The largest amounts of that capital were allocated towards technology and financial sector stocks, at 25.45% and 17.94% respectively. In this article we invite you to take a closer look at the top three positions of Marque Millennium, represented by Constellation Brands Inc (NYSE:STZ), Blackstone Group LP (NYSE:BX) and Express Scripts Holding Company (NASDAQ:ESRX). Perhaps, it’s high time time to check whether the aforementioned assumption holds true and employ such thinking in some of your own future picks.

We pay attention to hedge funds’ moves because our research has shown that hedge funds are extremely talented at picking stocks on the long side of their portfolios. It is true that hedge fund investors have been underperforming the market in recent years. However, this was mainly because hedge funds’ short stock picks lost a ton of money during the bull market that started in March 2009. Hedge fund investors also paid an arm and a leg for the services that they received. We have been tracking the performance of hedge funds’ 15 most popular stock picks in real time since the end of August 2012. These stocks have returned 123.1% since then and outperformed the S&P 500 Index by around 66.5 percentage points (see the details here). That’s why we believe it is important to pay attention to hedge fund sentiment; we also don’t like paying huge fees.
