PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia (ADR) (NYSE:TLK)PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia (ADR) (NYSE:TLK) has experienced an increase in activity from the world’s largest hedge funds lately.

To most shareholders, hedge funds are perceived as underperforming, outdated financial tools of the past. While there are greater than 8000 funds with their doors open at the moment, we hone in on the aristocrats of this club, around 450 funds. It is estimated that this group has its hands on the majority of all hedge funds’ total capital, and by keeping an eye on their top investments, we have revealed a number of investment strategies that have historically outpaced the broader indices. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outperformed the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points per annum for a decade in our back tests, and since we’ve started sharing our picks with our subscribers at the end of August 2012, we have beaten the S&P 500 index by 24 percentage points in 7 months (explore the details and some picks here).
