Hedge Fund Sentiment Is Stagnant On InterNAP Network Services (INAP)

Page 1 of 2

Hedge funds are not perfect. They have their bad picks just like everyone else. Micron, a stock hedge funds have loved, lost 50% during the last 12 months ending in October 30. Although hedge funds are not perfect, their consensus picks do deliver solid returns, however. Our data show the top 30 S&P 500 stocks among hedge funds at the end of September 2014 yielded an average return of 9.5% in the same time period, vs. a gain of 5.2% for the S&P 500 Index. Because hedge funds have a lot of resources and their consensus picks do well, we pay attention to what they think. In this article, we analyze what the elite funds think of InterNAP Network Services (NASDAQ:INAP).

InterNAP Network Services’ stock plunged by 34% between July and September, but the interest in the company from the funds we track was flat at the end of the quarter. This is usually a negative indicator. At the end of this article we will also compare INAP to other stocks, including Village Super Market, Inc. (NASDAQ:VLGEA), Independent Bank Corporation(MI) (NASDAQ:IBCP), and Paratek Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:PRTK) to get a better sense of its popularity.
