Hedge Funds Aren’t Crazy About CA, Inc. (CA) Anymore

Page 1 of 2

It is already common knowledge that individual investors do not usually have the necessary resources and abilities to properly research an investment opportunity. As a result, most investors pick their illusory “winners” by making a superficial analysis and research that leads to poor performance on aggregate. The Standard and Poor’s 500 Index returned 5.2% over the 12-month period ending October 30, while more than 51% of the constituents of the index underperformed the benchmark. Hence, a random stock picking process will most likely lead to disappointment. At the same time, the 30 most favored S&P 500 stocks by the hedge funds monitored by Insider Monkey (as of September 2014) generated a return of 9.5% over the same time span, with 63% of these stocks outperforming the benchmark. Of course, hedge funds do make wrong bets on some occasions and these get disproportionately publicized in financial media, but piggybacking their moves can beat the broader market on average. That’s why we are going to go over recent hedge fund activity in CA, Inc. (NASDAQ:CA).

CA, Inc. (NASDAQ:CA) shareholders have witnessed a decrease in hedge fund sentiment lately. At the end of this article we will also compare CA to other stocks including Nucor Corporation (NYSE:NUE), Spectra Energy Partners, LP (NYSE:SEP), and Liberty Media Corp (NASDAQ:LMCA) to get a better sense of its popularity.
