Here is What Hedge Funds Think About Nordic American Tanker Ltd (NAT)

Page 1 of 2

It was a rough third quarter for many hedge funds, which were naturally unable to overcome the big dip in the broad market, as the S&P 500 fell by about 7% during the quarter. The Russell 2000, composed of smaller companies, performed even worse, trailing the S&P by about 14 percentage points between June 25 and October 30, as investors fled less-known quantities for safe havens. This was the case with hedge funds, who we heard were pulling money from the market amid the volatility, which included money from small-cap stocks, which they invest in at a higher rate than other investors. This action contributed to the greater decline in these stocks during the tumultuous period. We will study how this market volatility affected their sentiment towards Nordic American Tanker Ltd (NYSE:NAT) during the quarter below.

Nordic American Tanker Ltd has experienced an increase in support from the world’s most elite money managers recently. NAT was in 18 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of September. There were 16 hedge funds in our database with NAT positions at the end of the previous quarter. At the end of this article we will also compare NAT to other stocks including DBV Technologies SA – ADR (NASDAQ:DBVT), Coherent, Inc. (NASDAQ:COHR), and Genesco Inc. (NYSE:GCO) to get a better sense of its popularity.
