Page 1 of 2

A whopping number of 13F filings filed with U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has been processed by Insider Monkey so that individual investors can look at the overall hedge fund sentiment towards the stocks included in their watchlists. These freshly-submitted public filings disclose money managers’ equity positions as of the end of the three-month period that ended September 30, so let’s proceed with the discussion of the hedge fund sentiment on QAD Inc. (NASDAQ:QADA).

QAD Inc. was in 11 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of the third quarter of 2015. QADA shareholders have witnessed an increase in hedge fund sentiment lately. There were 10 hedge funds in our database with QADA 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. 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 Actua Corp (NASDAQ:ACTA), Intralinks Holdings Inc (NYSE:IL), and Vera Bradley, Inc. (NASDAQ:VRA) to gather more data points.

In the eyes of most shareholders, hedge funds are viewed as underperforming, old investment tools of yesteryear. While there are over 8000 funds trading at present, Our researchers look at the elite of this club, about 700 funds. These money managers control most of all hedge funds’ total capital, and by paying attention to their highest performing stock picks, Insider Monkey has identified a few investment strategies that have historically outstripped the broader indices. Insider Monkey’s small-cap hedge fund strategy defeated the S&P 500 index by 12 percentage points per year for a decade in their back tests.

With all of this in mind, let’s view the new action encompassing QAD Inc. (NASDAQ:QADA).
