Here is What Hedge Funds Think About Orion Energy Systems, Inc. (OESX)

Page 1 of 2

We know that hedge funds generate strong, risk-adjusted returns over the long run, therefore imitating the picks that they are collectively bullish on can be a profitable strategy for retail investors. With billions of dollars in assets, smart money investors have to conduct complex analyses, spend many resources and use tools that are not always available for the general crowd. This doesn’t mean that they don’t have occasional colossal losses; they do (like Ackman’s recent Valeant losses). However, it is still good idea to keep an eye on hedge fund activity. With this in mind, as the current round of 13F filings has just ended, let’s examine the smart money sentiment towards Orion Energy Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:OESX).

Orion Energy Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:OSEX) shares haven’t seen a lot of action during the third quarter. One of the reasons behind the inactivity could be a drop of 28.29% in its share prices during the third quarter. Overall, hedge fund sentiment was unchanged. The stock was in 6 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of September. We will find out more about hedge funds holding positions in the company at the end of the last 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 Aeropostale, Inc. (NYSE:ARO), Cosi Inc (NASDAQ:COSI), and CHC Group Ltd (NYSE:HELI) to gather more data points.
