Should You Buy General Electric Company (GE)?

Investing in hedge funds can bring large profits, but it’s not for everybody, since hedge funds are available only for high-net-worth individuals. They generate significant returns for investors to justify their large fees and they allocate a lot of time and employ a complex analysis to determine the best stocks to invest in. A particularly interesting group of stocks that hedge funds like is the small-caps. The huge amount of capital does not allow hedge funds to invest a lot in small-caps, but our research showed that their most popular small-cap ideas are less efficiently priced and generate stronger returns than their large- and mega-cap picks and the broader market. That is why we follow the hedge fund activity in the small-cap space.

General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) was in 74 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of the third quarter of 2015. GE has seen an increase in hedge fund interest of late. There were 70 hedge funds in our database with GE positions at the end of the previous quarter. At the end of this article we will also compare GE to other stocks, including Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), China Mobile Ltd. (ADR) (NYSE:CHL), and Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) to get a better sense of its popularity.
