Page 1 of 2

Insider Monkey finished processing more than 700 13F filings made by hedge funds and prominent investors. These filings show these funds’ portfolio positions as of September 30. In this article we are going to take a look at smart money sentiment towards Starz (NASDAQ:STRZA).

Starz (NASDAQ:STRZA) investors should be aware of an increase in hedge fund interest of late. STRZA was in 29 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of the third quarter of 2015. There were 27 hedge funds in our database with STRZA 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 Vail Resorts, Inc. (NYSE:MTN), Sonoco Products Company (NYSE:SON), and WellCare Health Plans, Inc. (NYSE:WCG) to gather more data points.
