Hedge Funds Are Betting On Starwood Waypoint Residential Trust (SWAY)

Page 1 of 2

Reputable billionaire investors such as Nelson Peltz and David Tepper generate exorbitant profits for their wealthy accredited investors (a minimum of $1 million in investable assets would be required to invest in a hedge fund and most successful hedge funds won’t accept your savings unless you commit at least $5 million) by pinpointing winning small-cap stocks. There is little or no publicly-available information at all on some of these small companies, which makes it hard for an individual investor to pin down a winner within the small-cap space. However, hedge funds and other big asset managers can do the due diligence and analysis for you instead, thanks to their highly-skilled research teams and vast resources to conduct an appropriate evaluation process. Looking for potential winners within the small-cap galaxy of stocks? We believe following the smart money is a good starting point.

Starwood Waypoint Residential Trust (NYSE:SWAY) has experienced an increase in hedge fund interest of late. 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 Solaredge Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:SEDG), Clearwater Paper Corp (NYSE:CLW), and Scientific Games Corp (NASDAQ:SGMS) to gather more data points.
