We just talked about underrated activist hedge funds in our Sessa Capital article. There is only one activist hedge fund that followed Sessa Capital into Ashford Hospitality Prime (AHP) and that’s Raging Capital. Sessa Capital returned more than 30% last year and Raging Capital returned 27%. Most hedge funds didn’t even return half of these numbers. Yet, investors really don’t care much about following these two hedge funds’ moves.
Today, we are going to report on Raging Capital‘s recent move. William Martin knows a thing or two about managing a financial website which is why he probably purchased a large stake in Thestreet Inc. (NASDAQ:TST) last year. By the way, Thestreet Inc. (NASDAQ:TST) is Insider Monkey’s competitor, but you don’t really need to know much about managing a financial news website to figure out that TST isn’t managed very well and that’s probably because it is in a very competitive industry.
Anyway, TST shares haven’t been doing very well and Raging Capital has been cutting its stake in recent weeks. The details of its recent sales can be seen below:
