Should You Avoid Consolidated Edison, Inc. (ED)?

Page 1 of 2

Like everyone else, elite investors make mistakes. Some of their top consensus picks, such as Micron and Anadarko Petroleum, have not done well during the last 12 months ending in October due to various reasons. Nevertheless, the data show elite investors’ consensus picks have done well on average. The top 30 S&P 500 stocks among hedge funds at the end of September 2014 yielded an average return of 9.5% during the last four quarters ending in October and sixty three percent of these 30 stocks outperformed the market. S&P 500 Index returned only 5.2% during the same period and less than 49% of its constituents managed to beat this return. Because their consensus picks have done well, we pay attention to what elite funds think before doing extensive research on a stock. In this article, we take a closer look at Consolidated Edison, Inc. (NYSE:ED) from the perspective of those elite funds.

Consolidated Edison, Inc. (NYSE:ED) has seen a decrease in hedge fund sentiment recently. At the end of this article we will also compare ED to other stocks including Ameriprise Financial, Inc.
