Page 1 of 2

Homex Development Corp. (ADR) (NYSE:HXM) was in 7 hedge funds’ portfolio at the end of December. HXM has experienced a decrease in hedge fund interest recently. There were 7 hedge funds in our database with HXM positions at the end of the previous quarter.

In the eyes of most traders, hedge funds are assumed to be slow, old financial tools of years past. While there are over 8000 funds with their doors open at the moment, we look at the aristocrats of this group, close to 450 funds. Most estimates calculate that this group controls most of the hedge fund industry’s total capital, and by paying attention to their highest performing investments, we have formulated a number of investment strategies that have historically beaten Mr. Market. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outperformed the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points annually for a decade in our back tests, and since we’ve began to sharing our picks with our subscribers at the end of August 2012, we have outpaced the S&P 500 index by 24 percentage points in 7 months (check out a sample of our picks).

Just as beneficial, positive insider trading activity is another way to break down the marketplace. As the old adage goes: there are a variety of reasons for an insider to sell shares of his or her company, but only one, very obvious reason why they would buy. Various academic studies have demonstrated the impressive potential of this tactic if you understand where to look (learn more here).

Now, let’s take a glance at the latest action encompassing Homex Development Corp. (ADR) (NYSE:HXM).

How are hedge funds trading Homex Development Corp. (ADR) (NYSE:HXM)?

Royce & Associates has a $3.8 million position in the stock, comprising less than 0.1%% of its 13F portfolio.

Because Homex Development Corp.

Interestingly, Peter Rathjens, Bruce Clarke and John Campbell’s Arrowstreet Capital dumped the biggest stake of all the hedgies we monitor, valued at close to $1 million in stock.. Barton Biggs’s fund, Traxis Partners, also said goodbye to its stock, about $0.6 million worth. These moves are important to note, as aggregate hedge fund interest stayed the same (this is a bearish signal in our experience).
