Is MGE Energy, Inc. (MGEE) a Good Buy?

Page 1 of 2

Investing in hedge funds can bring large profits, but it’s not for everybody, since hedge funds are available only for high-net-worth individuals. They generate significant returns for investors to justify their large fees and they allocate a lot of time and employ a complex analysis to determine the best stocks to invest in. A particularly interesting group of stocks that hedge funds like is the small-caps. The huge amount of capital does not allow hedge funds to invest a lot in small-caps, but our research showed that their most popular small-cap ideas are less efficiently priced and generate stronger returns than their large- and mega-cap picks and the broader market. That is why we follow the hedge fund activity in the small-cap space.

MGE Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:MGEE) investors should pay attention to an increase in enthusiasm from smart money recently. MGEE was in 7 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of the third quarter of 2015. There were 6 hedge funds in our database with MGEE positions 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 Simmons First National Corporation (NASDAQ:SFNC), Select Medical Holdings Corporation (NYSE:SEM), and Prothena Corporation PLC (NASDAQ:PRTA) to gather more data points.
