Because Dixie Group Inc (NASDAQ:DXYN) has experienced a declination in interest from the entirety of the hedge funds we track, it’s safe to say that there is a sect of fund managers that elected to cut their full holdings by the end of the third quarter. Intriguingly, Michael Reeber’s Andalusian Capital Partners cut the biggest position of the 700 funds monitored by Insider Monkey, valued at about $1.4 million in stock, and Renaissance Technologies was right behind this move, as the fund sold off about $0.2 million worth of shares. These transactions are interesting, as aggregate hedge fund interest fell by 1 fund by the end of the third quarter.
