Hedge Funds Are Selling The Geo Group, Inc. (GEO)

Page 1 of 2

Out of thousands of stocks that are currently traded on the market, it is difficult to determine those that can really generate strong returns. Hedge funds and institutional investors spend millions of dollars on analysts with MBAs and PhDs, who are industry experts and well connected to other industry and media insiders on top of that. Individual investors can piggyback the hedge funds employing these talents and can benefit from their vast resources and knowledge in that way. We analyze quarterly 13F filings of over 700 hedge funds and, by looking at the smart money sentiment that surrounds a stock, we can determine whether it has potential to beat the market over the long-term. Therefore, let’s take a closer look at what smart money thinks about The Geo Group, Inc. (NYSE:GEO).

The Geo Group, Inc. (NYSE:GEO) investors should be aware of a decrease in hedge fund sentiment in recent months. GEO was in 16 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of September. There were 18 hedge funds in our database with GEO positions at the end of the previous quarter.
