Hedge Funds Aren’t Crazy About Northern Trust Corporation (NTRS) Anymore

Page 1 of 2

Is Northern Trust Corporation (NASDAQ:NTRS) a good bet right now? We like to analyze hedge fund sentiment before doing days of in-depth research. We do so because hedge funds and other elite investors have numerous Ivy league graduates, expert network advisers, and supply chain tipsters working or consulting for them. There is not a shortage of news stories covering failed hedge fund investments (for some reason media paid a ton of attention to Ackman’s gigantic JC Penney and Valeant failures) and it is a fact that hedge funds’ picks don’t beat the market 100% of the time, but their consensus picks have historically done very well and have outperformed the market after adjusting for risk.

Northern Trust Corporation (NASDAQ:NTRS) investors should pay attention to a decrease in enthusiasm from smart money recently. NTRS was in 22 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of the third quarter of 2015. There were 30 hedge funds in our database with NTRS holdings at the end of the previous quarter. At the end of this article we will also compare NTRS to other stocks including Liberty Interactive Corp (NASDAQ:QVCA), International Paper Company (NYSE:IP), and Roper Industries, Inc. (NYSE:ROP) to get a better sense of its popularity.
