Is Kemper Corporation (KMPR) Going to Burn These Hedge Funds?

Page 1 of 2

Hedge funds run by legendary names like Nelson Peltz and David Tepper make billions of dollars a year for themselves and their super-rich accredited investors (you’ve got to have a minimum of $1 million liquid to invest in a hedge fund) by spending enormous resources on analyzing and uncovering data about small-cap stocks that the big brokerage houses don’t follow. Small caps are where they can generate significant out-performance. That’s why we pay special attention to hedge fund activity in these stocks.

Kemper Corporation (NYSE:KMPR) has seen a decrease in hedge fund sentiment of late. 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 InterDigital, Inc. (NASDAQ:IDCC), Evercore Partners Inc. (NYSE:EVR), and COMSCORE, Inc. (NASDAQ:SCOR) to gather more data points.
