VMware, Inc. (VMW): Are Hedge Funds Right About This Stock?

Page 1 of 2

Out of thousands of stocks that are currently traded on the market, it is difficult to determine those that can really generate strong returns. Hedge funds and institutional investors spend millions of dollars on analysts with MBAs and PhDs, who are industry experts and well connected to other industry and media insiders on top of that. Individual investors can piggyback the hedge funds employing these talents and can benefit from their vast resources and knowledge in that way. We analyze quarterly 13F filings of over 700 hedge funds and, by looking at the smart money sentiment that surrounds a stock, we can determine whether it has potential to beat the market over the long-term. Therefore, let’s take a closer look at what smart money thinks about VMware, Inc. (NYSE:VMW).

VMware, Inc. (NYSE:VMW) shares haven’t seen a lot of action during the third quarter. Overall, hedge fund sentiment was unchanged. The stock was in 35 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of the third quarter of 2015. At the end of this article we will also compare VMW to other stocks including Raytheon Company (NYSE:RTN), Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (NASDAQ:FOXA), and Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) to get a better sense of its popularity.
