Page 1 of 2

Hedge funds and other investment firms run by legendary investors like Israel Englander and Ray Dalio are entrusted to manage billions of dollars of accredited investors’ money because they are without peer in the resources they use to identify the best investments for their chosen investment horizon. Moreover, they are more willing to invest a greater amount of their resources in small-cap stocks than big brokerage houses, and this is often where they generate their outperformance, which is why we pay particular attention to their best ideas in this space.

Is Cyberark Software Ltd (NASDAQ:CYBR) a buy right now? Hedge funds are getting less bullish. The number of bullish hedge fund bets shrunk by 2 lately. CYBR was in 21 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of September. There were 23 hedge funds in our database with CYBR 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 NOW Inc (NYSE:DNOW), Education Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE:EDR), and Cyberonics, Inc. (NASDAQ:CYBX) to gather more data points.

According to most market participants, hedge funds are seen as worthless, outdated financial vehicles of years past.
