Is EnLink Midstream Partners LP (ENLK) A Good Stock To Buy?

Page 1 of 2

The third quarter was a rough one for most investors, as fears of an interest rate hike in the U.S, a weakening economy in China, and a stagnant Europe, weighed heavily on the minds of investors. Both the S&P 500 and Russell 2000 sank as a result, with the Russell 2000, which is composed of smaller companies, being hit especially hard. This was primarily due to hedge funds, which are big supporters of small-cap stocks, pulling some of their capital out of the volatile markets during this time. Let’s look at how this market volatility affected the sentiment of hedge funds towards EnLink Midstream Partners LP (NYSE:ENLK), and what that likely means for the prospects of the company and its stock.

EnLink Midstream Partners LP (NYSE:ENLK) has experienced a decrease in hedge fund sentiment recently. 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 athenahealth, Inc (NASDAQ:ATHN), Turquoise Hill Resources Ltd (NYSE:TRQ), and Huntington Ingalls Industries Inc (NYSE:HII) to gather more data points.
