Should You Add LIBERTY GLOBAL PLC (LBTYK) to Your Portfolio?

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.

In this article, we are going to discuss LIBERTY GLOBAL PLC (NASDAQ:LBTYK), in which 56 funds tracked by Insider Monkey held shares at the end of September. LBTYK investors should be aware of a decrease in hedge fund interest, as there had been 60 funds with LBTYK positions at the end of the previous quarter. At the end of this article, we will also compare LBTYK to other stocks including Manulife Financial Corporation (USA) (NYSE:MFC), Equinix Inc (NASDAQ:EQIX), and eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY) to get a better sense of its popularity.
