Page 1 of 2

Most investors tend to think that hedge funds and other asset managers are worthless, as they cannot beat even simple index fund portfolios. In fact, most people expect hedge funds to compete with and outperform the bull market that we have witnessed over the past few years. However, hedge funds are generally partially hedged and aim at delivering attractive risk-adjusted returns rather than following the ups and downs of equity markets, hoping that they will outperform the broader market. Our research shows that hedge funds do have great stock picking skills, so let’s take a glance at the smart money sentiment towards TETRA Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:TTI).

Is TETRA Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:TTI) ready to rally soon? The smart money is taking a bullish view. The number of long hedge fund bets moved up by 5 in recent months. 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 Oi SA (ADR) (NYSE:OIBR), Nautilus, Inc. (NYSE:NLS), and China Yuchai International Limited (NYSE:CYD) to gather more data points.
