We already know that not all hedge funds are bullish on the stock and some hedge funds actually dropped their positions entirely. At the top of the heap, Panayotis Takis Sparaggis’ Alkeon Capital Management dropped the biggest position of the “upper crust” of funds monitored by Insider Monkey, comprising about $1.7 million in stock. Renaissance Technologies, one of the biggest hedge funds in the world, also cut its stock, about $1.2 million worth.
Let’s now take a look at hedge fund activity in other stocks – not necessarily in the same industry as Immersion Corporation (NASDAQ:IMMR) but similarly valued. We will take a look at Ardmore Shipping Corp (NYSE:ASC), Mobileiron Inc (NASDAQ:MOBL), Datalink Corporation (NASDAQ:DTLK), and Tandem Diabetes Care Inc (NASDAQ:TNDM). All of these stocks’ market caps resemble IMMR’s market cap.
