Is Federated Investors Inc (NYSE:FII) a good investment right now? We check hedge fund and billionaire investor sentiment before delving into hours of research. Hedge funds spend millions of dollars on Ivy League graduates, expert networks, and get tips from industry insiders. They fail miserably sometimes but historically their consensus stock picks outperformed the market after adjusting for known risk factors.

Federated Investors Inc (NYSE:FII) has experienced a decrease in support from the world’s most elite money managers in recent months. FII was in 12 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of the third quarter of 2015. There were 18 hedge funds in our database with FII 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.
