Hedge Funds Are Dumping Manchester United PLC (MANU)

Page 1 of 2

As we already know from media reports and hedge fund investor letters, many hedge funds lost money in the third quarter, blaming macroeconomic conditions and unpredictable events that hit several sectors, with healthcare among them. Nevertheless, most investors decided to stick to their bullish theses and their long-term focus allows us to profit from the recent declines. In particular, let’s take a look at what hedge funds think about Manchester United PLC (NYSE:MANU) in this article.

Is Manchester United PLC (NYSE:MANU) worth your attention right now? Prominent investors may be becoming less confident, although they still amassed over 13% of the company’s outstanding stock at the end of September. Nevertheless, the number of long hedge fund bets went down by 1 recently. 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 JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (NYSE:JKS), CVR Partners LP (NYSE:UAN), and Sierra Wireless, Inc. (USA) (NASDAQ:SWIR) to gather more data points.

According to most stock holders, hedge funds are assumed to be slow, outdated financial vehicles of yesteryear. While there are more than 8000 funds trading at the moment, We look at the aristocrats of this group, about 700 funds. Most estimates calculate that this group of people have their hands on the lion’s share of all hedge funds’ total capital, and by keeping an eye on their inimitable investments, Insider Monkey has come up with various investment strategies that have historically defeated the broader indices. Insider Monkey’s small-cap hedge fund strategy beat the S&P 500 index by 12 percentage points a year for a decade in their back tests.

With all of this in mind, we’re going to analyze the key action encompassing Manchester United PLC (NYSE:MANU).
