What Do Hedge Funds Think of Sealed Air Corp (SEE)?

Page 1 of 2

At Insider Monkey, we pore over the filings of more than 700 top investment firms every quarter, a process we have now completed for the latest reporting period. The data we’ve gathered as a result gives us access to a wealth of collective knowledge based on these firms’ portfolio holdings as of September 30. In this article, we will use that wealth of knowledge to determine whether or not Sealed Air Corp (NYSE:SEE) makes for a good investment right now.

Is Sealed Air Corp a healthy stock for your portfolio? The smart money is reducing their bets on the stock. The number of bullish hedge fund positions fell by 5 lately. SEE was in 49 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of the third quarter of 2015. There were 54 hedge funds in our database with SEE 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 Eastman Chemical Company (NYSE:EMN), C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ:CHRW), and Autoliv Inc. (NYSE:ALV) to gather more data points.
