Page 1 of 2

At Insider Monkey we follow around 730 of the best-performing investors and even though many of them lost money in the last several months, the history teaches us that over the long-run they still manage to beat the market, which is why it can be profitable for us to imitate their activity. Of course, even the best money managers can sometimes get it wrong, but following some of their picks gives us a better chance to outperform the crowd than picking a random stock and this is where our research comes in.

Trinity Industries, Inc. (NYSE:TRN) was in 23 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of September. TRN shareholders have witnessed a decrease in activity from the world’s largest hedge funds of late. There were 26 hedge funds in our database with TRN holdings 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 Intrexon Corp (NYSE:XON), NuStar Energy L.P. (NYSE:NS), and Thoratec Corporation (NASDAQ:THOR) to gather more data points.
