Page 1 of 2

Is Ruth’s Hospitality Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:RUTH) a good bet right now? We like to analyze hedge fund sentiment before doing days of in-depth research. We do so because hedge funds and other elite investors have numerous Ivy league graduates, expert network advisers, and supply chain tipsters working or consulting for them. There is not a shortage of news stories covering failed hedge fund investments (for some reason media paid a ton of attention to Ackman’s gigantic JC Penney and Valeant failures) and it is a fact that hedge funds’ picks don’t beat the market 100% of the time, but their consensus picks have historically done very well and have outperformed the market after adjusting for risk.

Ruth’s Hospitality Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:RUTH) investors should pay attention to an increase in support from the world’s most elite money managers recently. RUTH was in 17 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of the third quarter of 2015. There were 12 hedge funds in our database with RUTH holdings at the end of the previous quarter. At the end of this article we will also compare RUTH to other stocks including John B. Sanfilippo & Son, Inc. (NASDAQ:JBSS), Glu Mobile Inc. (NASDAQ:GLUU), and Motorcar Parts of America, Inc. (NASDAQ:MPAA) to get a better sense of its popularity.
