Page 1 of 2

Hedge funds and large money managers usually invest with a focus on the long-term horizon and, therefore, short-lived dips on the charts, usually don’t make them change their opinion towards a company. This time it may be different. During the third quarter we observed increased volatility and small-cap stocks underperformed the market. Hedge fund investor letters indicated that they are cutting their overall exposure, closing out some position and doubling down on others. Let’s take a look at the hedge fund sentiment towards Toyota Motor Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:TM) to find out whether it was one of their high conviction long-term ideas.

Toyota Motor Corporation (ADR) shareholders have witnessed an increase in hedge fund sentiment recently. TM was in 13 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of the third quarter of 2015. There were 11 hedge funds in our database with TM holdings 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 Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ), The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO), and The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS) to gather more data points.
