Nothing About Primoris Services Corp (PRIM) Is Exciting Investors

Earlier we told you that the aggregate hedge fund interest in the stock was unchanged and we view this as a negative development. Even though there weren’t any hedge funds dumping their holdings during the third quarter, there weren’t any hedge funds initiating brand new positions either. This indicates that hedge funds, at the very best, perceive this stock as dead money and haven’t identified any viable catalysts to attract their attention.

Let’s go over hedge fund activity in other stocks similar to Primoris Services Corp (NASDAQ:PRIM). We will take a look at Barnes & Noble, Inc. (NYSE:BKS), Gray Television, Inc. (NYSE:GTN), Q2 Holdings Inc (NYSE:QTWO), and LDR Holding Corp (NASDAQ:LDRH). This group of stocks’ market valuations resemble Primoris Services Corp’s market valuation.
