However, in this article we will take a look at their collective moves and analyze what the smart money thinks of YuMe Inc (NYSE:YUME) based on that data.

Is YuMe Inc (NYSE:YUME) the right investment to pursue these days? The smart money is taking a pessimistic view. The number of bullish hedge fund bets were cut by 4 recently. YUME was in 5 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of September. There were 9 hedge funds in our database with YUME holdings at the end of the previous quarter.
