Page 1 of 2

You probably know from experience that there is not as much information on small-cap companies as there is on large companies. Of course, this makes it really hard and difficult for individual investors to make a proper and accurate analysis of certain small-cap companies. However, well-known and successful hedge fund investors like Carl Icahn and George Soros hold the necessary resources and abilities to conduct an extensive stock analysis on small-cap stocks, which enable them to make millions of dollars by identifying potential winners within the small-cap galaxy of stocks. This represents the main reason why Insider Monkey takes notice of the hedge fund activity in these overlooked stocks.

Is TPG Specialty Lending Inc (NYSE:TSLX) a great investment today? Money managers are taking an optimistic view. The number of long hedge fund bets rose by 1 lately. TPG Specialty Lending Inc (NYSE:TSLX) was in 6 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of September. There were 5 hedge funds in our database with TPG Specialty Lending Inc (NYSE:TSLX) holdings at the end of the previous quarter.
