Is Intralinks Holdings Inc (IL) a Good Stock to Buy Right Now?

Hedge funds and other investment firms run by legendary investors like Israel Englander and Ray Dalio are entrusted to manage billions of dollars of accredited investors’ money because they are without peer in the resources they use to identify the best investments for their chosen investment horizon. Moreover, they are more willing to invest a greater amount of their resources in small-cap stocks than big brokerage houses, and this is often where they generate their outperformance, which is why we pay particular attention to their best ideas in this space.

Let’s take a closer look at Intralinks Holdings Inc (NYSE:IL), which registered a slight decrease in hedge fund sentiment recently. More specifically, during the third quarter, the number of investors in our database bullish on the company inched down by one to 23. At the end of this article we will also compare IL to other stocks including Alon USA Energy, Inc.
