Is FirstEnergy Corp. (FE) A Good Stock To Buy?

Page 1 of 2

Is FirstEnergy Corp. (NYSE:FE) a good bet right now? We like to analyze hedge fund sentiment before doing days of in-depth research. We do so because hedge funds and other elite investors have numerous Ivy League graduates, expert network advisers, and supply chain tipsters working or consulting for them. There is not a shortage of news stories covering failed hedge fund investments (for some reason media paid a ton of attention to Ackman’s gigantic JC Penney and Valeant failures) and it is a fact that hedge funds’ picks don’t beat the market 100% of the time, but their consensus picks have historically done very well and have outperformed the market after adjusting for risk.

FirstEnergy Corp was in 24 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of September. FE investors should pay attention to an increase in activity from the world’s largest hedge funds in recent months. There were 21 hedge funds in our database with FE positions at the end of the previous quarter. At the end of this article we will also compare FE to other stocks, including Workday Inc (NYSE:WDAY), Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE:RHT), and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd (NASDAQ:NCLH) to get a better sense of its popularity.
