Hedge Funds Are Overweight PTC Inc (PTC)

Legendary investors such as Leon Cooperman and Seth Klarman earn enormous amounts of money for themselves and their investors by doing in-depth research on small-cap stocks that big brokerage houses don’t publish. Small cap stocks -especially when they are screened well- can generate substantial outperformance versus a boring index fund. That’s why we analyze the activity of those elite funds in these small-cap stocks. In the following paragraphs, we analyze PTC Inc (NASDAQ:PTC) from the perspective of those elite funds.

PTC Inc (NASDAQ:PTC) was in 30 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of the third quarter of 2016. PTC has seen a decrease in hedge fund interest of late. There were 32 hedge funds in our database with PTC 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 Sally Beauty Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:SBH), Scotts Miracle-Gro Co (NYSE:SMG), and White Mountains Insurance Group Ltd (NYSE:WTM) to gather more data points.
