Page 1 of 2

Billionaire hedge fund managers such as Steve Cohen and Stan Druckenmiller can generate millions or even billions of dollars every year by pinning down high-potential small-cap stocks and pouring cash into these candidates. Small-cap stocks are overlooked by most investors, brokerage houses, and financial services hubs, while the unlimited research abilities of the big players within the hedge fund industry can easily identify the undervalued and high-potential stocks that reside the ignored corners of equity markets. There are numerous small-cap stocks that have turned out to be great winners, which is one of the main reasons the Insider Monkey team pays close attention to the hedge fund activity in relation to these stocks.

Summit Hotel Properties Inc (NYSE:INN) has seen a decrease in support from the world’s most elite money managers of late. INN was in 8 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of the third quarter of 2015. There were 10 hedge funds in our database with INN holdings at the end of the previous quarter.
