The data we’ve gathered as a result gives us access to a wealth of collective knowledge based on these firms’ portfolio holdings as of September 30. In this article, we will use that wealth of knowledge to determine whether or not MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE:MXL) makes for a good investment right now.

MaxLinear, Inc. investors should be aware of an increase in enthusiasm from smart money in recent months. MXL was in 24 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of the third quarter of 2015. There were 23 hedge funds in our database with MXL holdings 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 Quotient Technology Inc (NYSE:COUP), Heartland Financial USA Inc (NASDAQ:HTLF), and P.H. Glatfelter Company (NYSE:GLT) to gather more data points.
