Hedge fund investor letters indicated that they are cutting their overall exposure, closing out some positions and doubling down on others. Let’s take a look at the hedge fund sentiment towards Radio One, Inc. (NASDAQ:ROIAK) to find out whether it was one of their high conviction long-term ideas.

Radio One, Inc. (NASDAQ:ROIAK) shareholders have witnessed a decrease in support from the world’s most elite money managers recently. ROIAK was in 8 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of September. There were 9 hedge funds in our database with ROIAK holdings 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.
