Page 1 of 2

Insider Monkey has processed numerous 13F filings of hedge funds and famous investors to create an extensive database of hedge fund holdings. The 13F filings show the hedge funds and investors’ positions as of the end of the third quarter. You can find write-ups about an individual hedge fund’s trades on numerous financial news websites. However, in this article we will take a look at their collective moves and analyze what the smart money thinks of EZCORP Inc (NASDAQ:EZPW) based on that data.

EZCORP Inc (NASDAQ:EZPW) was in 17 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of September. EZPW investors should pay attention to a decrease in support from the world’s most elite money managers recently. There were 21 hedge funds in our database with EZPW 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 Flexion Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ:FLXN), Western Asset High Yield Defined Opportunity Fund Inc. (NYSE:HYI), and Lionbridge Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:LIOX) to gather more data points.
