Hedge Funds Are Buying J&J Snack Foods Corp. (JJSF)

Page 1 of 2

Investing in hedge funds can bring large profits, but it’s not for everybody, since hedge funds are available only for high-net-worth individuals. They generate significant returns for investors to justify their large fees and they allocate a lot of time and employ a complex analysis to determine the best stocks to invest in. A particularly interesting group of stocks that hedge funds like is the small-caps. The huge amount of capital does not allow hedge funds to invest a lot in small-caps, but our research showed that their most popular small-cap ideas are less efficiently priced and generate stronger returns than their large- and mega-cap picks and the broader market. That is why we follow the hedge fund activity in the small-cap space.

Is J&J Snack Foods Corp. (NASDAQ:JJSF) going to take off soon? The smart money is turning bullish. The number of bullish hedge fund positions increased by 2 in recent months.
