How Does Smart Money Feel About Timkensteel Corp (TMST)?

Page 1 of 2

Many investors, including Carl Icahn or Stan Druckenmiller, have been saying for a while now that the current market is overvalued due to a low interest rate environment that leads to companies swapping their equity for debt and focusing mostly on short-term performance such as beating the quarterly earnings estimates. In the third quarter, many investors lost money due to unpredictable events such as the concerns over Valeant’s drug pricing policy that led to an overall drop among pharma stocks. Nevertheless, many of the stocks that tanked in the third quarter still sport strong fundamentals and their decline was more related to the general market sentiment rather than their individual performance and hedge funds kept their bullish stance. In this article we will find out how hedge fund sentiment to Timkensteel Corp (NYSE:TMST) changed recently.

Timkensteel Corp (NYSE:TMST) has experienced an increase in hedge fund sentiment in recent months. TMST was in 16 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of the third quarter of 2015.
