Page 1 of 2

While the market driven by short-term sentiment influenced by uncertainty regarding the future of the interest rate environment in the US, the low commodity prices and the economic turmoil in China, many smart money investors are keeping their optimism regarding the current bull run, while still hedging many of their long positions. However, as we know, big investors usually buy stocks with strong fundamentals, which is why we believe we can profit from imitating them. In this article, we are going to take a look at the smart money sentiment surrounding Kimball Electronics Inc (NASDAQ:KE).

Kimball Electronics Inc (NASDAQ:KE) was in 10 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of September. KE investors should be aware of an increase in hedge fund interest recently. There were 9 hedge funds in our database with KE holdings 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 Ocular Therapeutix Inc (NASDAQ:OCUL), NeoGenomics, Inc. (NASDAQ:NEO), and Perry Ellis International, Inc. (NASDAQ:PERY) to gather more data points.
