Page 1 of 2

Before we spend many hours researching a company, we’d like to analyze what hedge funds and billionaire investors think of the stock first. We would like to do so because the elite investors’ consensus returns have been exceptional. The top 30 S&P 500 stocks among hedge funds at the end of September 2014 yielded an average return of 9.5% during the last 12 months ending in October 30. Sixty three percent of these 30 stocks outperformed the market. Although the elite funds occasionally have their duds, such as Micron and Anadarko Petroleum, which fell 50% and 26%, respectively during the same time period, the hedge fund picks seem to work on average. In the following paragraphs, we find out what the billionaire investors and hedge funds think of Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:BR).

Is Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:BR) a great investment today? Hedge funds are in a bullish mood. The number of bullish hedge fund positions rose by 1 recently. BR was in 25 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of the third quarter of 2015. There were 24 hedge funds in our database with BR 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 Iron Mountain Incorporated (NYSE:IRM), Western Gas Partners, LP (NYSE:WES), and Israel Chemicals Ltd. (NYSE:ICL) to gather more data points.
