Is Omnicell, Inc. (OMCL) Going to Burn These Hedge Funds?

Omnicell, Inc. (NASDAQ:OMCL) investors should pay attention to a decrease in activity from the world’s largest hedge funds in recent months.

Omnicell, Inc. (NASDAQ:OMCL)In the financial world, there are plenty of metrics market participants can use to track Mr. Market. A pair of the most under-the-radar are hedge fund and insider trading sentiment. At Insider Monkey, our research analyses have shown that, historically, those who follow the best picks of the best fund managers can outclass their index-focused peers by a solid margin (see just how much).

Just as integral, optimistic insider trading activity is another way to parse down the world of equities. There are many incentives for an executive to cut shares of his or her company, but just one, very obvious reason why they would buy. Several academic studies have demonstrated the impressive potential of this tactic if piggybackers understand what to do (learn more here).

With all of this in mind, we’re going to take a gander at the key action regarding Omnicell, Inc. (NASDAQ:OMCL).

At Q1′s end, a total of 8 of the hedge funds we track were long in this stock, a change of 0% from the first quarter. With the smart money’s positions undergoing their usual ebb and flow, there exists a few key hedge fund managers who were increasing their stakes meaningfully.

Judging by the fact that Omnicell, Inc.

Matthew Tewksbury’s fund, Stevens Capital Management, also said goodbye to its stock, about $0.2 million worth.
