Hedge Funds Remain Committed to The Allstate Corporation (ALL)

Page 1 of 2

Is The Allstate Corporation (NYSE:ALL) a good stock to buy right now? We at Insider Monkey like to examine what billionaires and hedge funds think of a company before doing days of research on it. Given their 2-and-20 payment structure, hedge funds have more resources than the average investor. The funds have access to expert networks and get tips from industry insiders. They also have numerous Ivy League graduates and MBAs on their staffs. Like everyone else, hedge funds perform poorly at times, but their consensus picks have historically outperformed the market after risk adjustments.

The Allstate Corporation (NYSE:ALL) shareholders have witnessed a decrease in enthusiasm from smart money recently. ALL was in 39 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of September. There were 40 hedge funds in our database with ALL 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 AvalonBay Communities Inc (NYSE:AVB), SYSCO Corporation (NYSE:SYY), and Health Care REIT, Inc. (NYSE:HCN) to gather more data points.
