Hedge Funds Aren’t Crazy About The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (GT) Anymore

Page 1 of 2

We know that hedge funds generate strong, risk-adjusted returns over the long run, therefore imitating the picks that they are collectively bullish on can be a profitable strategy for retail investors. With billions of dollars in assets, smart money investors have to conduct complex analyses, spend many resources and use tools that are not always available for the general crowd. This doesn’t mean that they don’t have occasional colossal losses; they do (like Ackman’s recent Valeant losses). However, it is still a good idea to keep an eye on hedge fund activity. With this in mind, as the current round of 13F filings has just ended, let’s examine the smart money sentiment towards The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (NASDAQ:GT).

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (NASDAQ:GT) has experienced a decrease in hedge fund sentiment recently. GT was in 36 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of the third quarter of 2015. There were 42 hedge funds in our database with GT positions 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 Mettler-Toledo International Inc. (NYSE:MTD), KLA-Tencor Corporation (NASDAQ:KLAC), and Interpublic Group of Companies Inc (NYSE:IPG) to gather more data points.
