Page 1 of 2

Does Spok Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:SPOK) represent a good buying opportunity at the moment? Let’s briefly check the hedge fund sentiment towards the company. Hedge fund firms constantly search out bright intellectuals and highly-experienced employees and throw away millions of dollars on research activities, so it is no wonder why they tend to generate millions in profits each year. It is also true that some hedge fund players fail unconceivably on some occasions, but their stock picks have been generating superior risk-adjusted returns on average over the years.

Spok Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:SPOK) was in 10 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of September. SPOK shareholders have witnessed an increase in hedge fund sentiment in recent months. There were 8 hedge funds in our database with SPOK positions at the end of the previous quarter. 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 Jive Software Inc (NASDAQ:JIVE), Powell Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:POWL), and Bank Mutual Corporation (NASDAQ:BKMU) to gather more data points.
