Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co (HPE): Hedge Funds Are Snapping Up

At Insider Monkey, we pore over the filings of more than 700 top investment firms every quarter, a process we have now completed for the latest reporting period. The data we’ve gathered as a result gives us access to a wealth of collective knowledge based on these firms’ portfolio holdings as of September 30. In this article, we will use that wealth of knowledge to determine whether or not Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co (NYSE:HPE) makes for a good investment right now.

Is Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co (NYSE:HPE) a healthy stock for your portfolio? The best stock pickers are undeniably in a bullish mood. The number of long hedge fund positions strengthened by 8 recently. HPE was in 71 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of the third quarter of 2016. There were 63 hedge funds in our database with HPE 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 General Mills, Inc. (NYSE:GIS), America Movil SAB de CV (ADR) (NYSE:AMX), and Carnival plc (ADR) (NYSE:CUK) to gather more data points.
