Calix Inc (NYSE:CALX) is the most popular stock in this table. On the other hand Catchmark Timber Trust Inc (NYSE:CTT) is the least popular one with only 11 bullish hedge fund positions. Multi-Fineline Electronix, Inc. (NASDAQ:MFLX) is not the most popular stock in this group but hedge fund interest is still above average.
