There are several ways to beat the market, and investing in small cap stocks has historically been one of them. We like to improve the odds of beating the market further by examining what famous hedge fund operators such as Carl Icahn and George Soros think. Those hedge fund operators make billions of dollars each year by hiring the best and the brightest to do research on stocks, including small cap stocks that big brokerage houses simply don’t cover. Because of Carl Icahn and other elite funds’ exemplary historical records, we pay attention to their small cap picks. In this article, we use hedge fund filing data to analyze UBS AG (USA) (NYSE:UBS).

UBS AG (USA) (NYSE:UBS) was in 13 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of September. UBS has seen a decrease in hedge fund sentiment recently.
