Is DTS Inc. (DTSI) Going to Burn These Hedge Funds?

Page 1 of 2

The third-quarter stock market correction has turned out to resemble the situation observed during the Asian financial crisis of 1997. The two relatively short-lived corrections occurred at a time with stable interest rates, falling commodity markets, with strong-performing technology and healthcare sectors, and struggling energy sector. Similarly, the two corrections followed long periods without a correction, which had to come sooner or later and it did. Even so, several prominent hedge fund investors publicly asserted their bearish view on the current state of the U.S. equity markets, suggesting that they significantly cut their exposure to equities during the latest quarter. Having said that, it would be worthwhile to take a look at the hedge fund sentiment on DTS Inc. (NASDAQ:DTSI) in order to identify whether reputable and successful top money managers continue to believe in its potential.

DTS Inc. was in 12 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of September. DTSI shareholders have witnessed a decrease in enthusiasm from smart money in recent months.
