Although the masses and most of the financial media blame hedge funds for their exorbitant fee structure and disappointing performance, these investors have proved to have great stock picking abilities over the years (that’s why their assets under management continue to swell).

After all, these people have access to smartest analysts and expensive data/information sources that individual investors can’t match. So should one consider investing in Boston Beer Co Inc (NYSE:SAM)? The smart money sentiment can provide an answer to this question.
